7. Introducing the University Writing Program!

To improve student learning and experiences in its courses, the University Writing Program (UWP) has revised its curriculum. The changes in this revision reflect the program’s commitment to best practices in writing instruction as guided by research and experience. The revision includes not only the curricular changes but also a name change: GSW is now the University Writing Program, with the new course prefix WRIT—a fitting prefix for writing courses!

The UWP’s curricular revision emphasizes several activities and goals of the program, including cultivating habits of mind that support effective writing and learning, encouraging inquiry of the world through reading and writing, connecting students with real-world audiences and resources, creating conditions for meaningful writing experiences, and more. To learn more about the new and improved UWP, see the English Department website.

8. FREE YOGA CLASSES FOR A RESEARCH STUDY

Participants should be females between ages 18 and 28. The main goal of this research is to compare physiological and psychological responses to a beginner yoga class in indoor versus outdoor environments. This study involves answering short questionnaires and measurements of vital signs (i.e., breathing rate, heart rate, and perfusion index). Yoga classes will be held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 8-9 p.m. throughout the summer. Each volunteer would have to participate in ONLY ONE yoga class, and will receive a FREE yoga mat. No previous yoga experience is required. If interested, please contact Kelsey Dietrich via email: dietkel@bgsu.edu.
