Fall 2016. Time flies.
New semester means a new instruction intern at Gorgas Information Services. Welcome to Kelly Groves! You will be hearing from Kelly throughout the semester as she blogs about her adventures in instruction and research.
This semester we’ve got a lot going on. On an organizational level, we are 1.5 years into a curriculum mapping project that has already proven it’s value in helping us better assess the degree paths of our undergraduates and being to re-imagine our role in that path. We are implementing a new assessment program for our first year writing instruction, and along with this assessment we are starting to test the validity of our implementation of the Framework, which is very exciting! And we are doing a soft pilot of a new collaboration with first semester composition, which we have not traditionally worked with.
I am so excited to see what else this semester brings!
