With the help of a PITF, Professor Levinson created a web-based self-paced tutorial consisting of five lessons that students could walk through at their own pace. Each section included exemplars and hyperlinks to supplement materials tailored for the particular tutorial allowing students to “teach themselves.” Among these exemplars was a complete student paper that students were able to download and use as a model.
In faculty member Meira Levinson's A-127 course, students encountered consistent pitfalls in their analytic writing assignments. Faculty and TF coaching alone was not meeting the students' needs. Students needed to visit, revisit, and engage with various aspects of the writing process that were most troublesome for them in an organized manner with effective exemplars.
