Assignment Design for Research and Writing

Resources to reference when creating research and writing assignments to maximize clarity and accessibility.


You     ♦     Librarians     ♦     Writing Studio Tutors

  • Students forget that there are MICA people who can help them. Explicitly mention what support students can seek for their assignment. 
    • Librarians staff Decker's Research Help desk between 12-6pm everyday.
    • Each Department/Program has their own dedicated librarian. Connect with us beforehand to go over your assignment. 
    • For small classes: Assign extra credit or require students to talk to a librarian or tutor. **Run this by the librarian or Writing Studio first (we may be busy/out of town)!
