This fall, the UAA writing program is rolling out its newly designed Writing Across Contexts (WRTG 111) course, using an adaptable master course shell in over 20 online and face-to-face sections. The course shell features research-based, culturally-responsive writing assignments that help classes come together as interactive learning communities. Online master course shells for subsequent courses in the writing sequence, WRTG 211 and 212, build upon the WRTG 111 base to integrate students' experience across semesters.

Online Master Course (OMCs) shells are templates that are designed and developed by faculty teams, instructional designers, and support personnel along with other UAA collaborators. OMCs ensure consistency with content delivery as well as the assurance that students acquire the necessary skills and knowledge. Benefits also include reduced course development time for instructors and the organic creation of an online learning faculty community.  More about OMCs
