Wednesday: Writing Across the Curriculum Workshop
What do students learn in ENL 111 Effective Writing? How can departments build on it?
As stated in our Undergraduate Student Learning Outcomes, Augsburg faculty are committed to teaching students critical reading - "to construct coherent, polished and persuasive arguments, narratives and explications in written, oral and other formats." At this workshop led by the English department, faculty will discuss the role of writing in the curriculum. What is Effective Writing, and how should it prepare students as writers coming out of ENL 111?

$5 Gift Card for Research Study Participants
My name is Darby Lindgren, and I am a senior Exercise Science student and an URGO researcher this summer at Augsburg. I am investigating a modified version of the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) test in Division III male college soccer players and need healthy male Augsburg College students (ages 18-24) to participate in this study as part of the control group. You may not be currently a part of an Augsburg athletic team.
This study involves a half-hour visit to Kennedy Center Physiology lab (Room 309) for Functional Movement Screen testing and a video of a single-leg squat. Participants will receive a $5 gift card to Target. You may also stick around for further research testing and another $5 gift card.
You can reach me at: email@example.com to get more details or to schedule an appointment time.
