Entry-level writing courses are foundational courses for students’ subsequent academic success, yet too often such courses present a barrier to student success with an outsized impact on students from minoritized backgrounds. That’s why APLU and Every Learner Everywhere teamed up with the University System of Georgia to facilitate adoption of digital-forward instruction design for entry-level writing courses to address inequities and advance student success. The groups conducted two workshops around digital-forward writing instruction design and have issued new reports sharing out lessons from the work.
