Winter Institute on Learning (WIL)

This year’s WIL will take place virtually on zoom from January 17-19, 2024. The institute will focus on specifications grading, an alternative grading strategy that provides students with explicit information about what they need to do to earn different grades in a course while providing them with opportunities to make choices and resubmit some assignments.

UDAILY Article: Foundational Course Initiative

“Adapting to a full academic schedule as a first-year student also means adapting study and time management skills… As part of the FCI, faculty blend skill-building like note-taking and self-reflection directly into the teaching and assessment of their courses.”

“Genova added, “It is a common goal to promote retention and persistence in our disciplines, but we cannot achieve such things without providing our students with a strong foundation: not just in terms of foundational knowledge in our disciplines, but also by helping our students establish strong study skills and a genuine sense of belonging in the classroom.”
