June 19, 2017 (Monday)Dr. Joanne Beriswill is among the most recent graduates of the university's Maroon Institute for Writing Excellence (MIWE) program. Initiated five years ago in conjunction with the MSU Quality Enhancement Plan Maroon & Write, MIWE's primary goal is to provide extensive three-week training for teachers who commit to modify course syllabi to incorporate writing-to-learning strategies into class assignments. Research data are compiled by the QEP staff to determine the impact of writing-to-learn strategies on the writing proficiency of all MSU students.
Dr. Beriswill will be implementing the writing-to-learn strategies in TKB 4583/6583 Graphics and Web Design in the second summer term. As many of her students will confirm, Dr. Beriswill is an excellent teacher of writing. It will be exciting to see the new strategies that are in store for her students this summer.
