Build Writing and Communication Bridges (English 2993)

In this one-credit course, you will develop skills that will prepare you to succeed in your college writing classes, in your college classes beyond First Year Composition (FYC), and in your lives beyond UNM. Through a variety of writing, discussion-board, and synchronous and asynchronous multimodal engagements, you will develop a relationship with your peers and instructor that will support your expanding knowledge about online course delivery at UNM, the writing and communication expectations in college classes, financial literacy for college students, use of online tools across the curriculum, and the “where’s-who’s-and-why’s” of life at UNM. You will compose discussion board posts, keep an online writing journal, create “video blogs” (vlogs), and participate in synchronous class discussion, in whole-class and small-team formats. The course is designed to help you have a “strong start” to your college experience.
