Project Description

Changes in the human services continue to present the need for inter-professional collaboration. As such, strong written and technological skills are crucial for effective practice and to meet the complex needs of clients. As this is the introductory course to the major and one that develops the foundation skills students will utilized throughout the major’s curriculum, it is important for student success to front
load their writing skills through a variety of pedagogical approaches that also include technological supports.
As such, Human Services students require
(a) Innovative curriculum and instruction that affords them these skills more effectively and to strengthen these skills early on in their course of study.
(b) Faculty also need resources and support for implementing a variety of teaching practices and assessment measures to meet departmental goals. This includes developing high impact practices that engage students in writing intensive instruction.

This site will , thus, serve as a resource exchange for instruction on writing skills for the human services, and lesson module or assignment that involves the use of the colleges open access platform.
