6. Publicizing available materials

Auburn University’s program to help students improve their writing skills announced in October a new online hub that allows students and instructors to access learning materials created for writing workshops. The school’s University Writing program built a digital infrastructure for its materials, reviewed them and published them online.

The materials featured on the University Writing OER include guidance for students on how to compose professional emails or write in an academic voice, as well as materials for instructors. Users can look up how to give effective written student feedback or design assignments.
