female student typing on a laptopThe Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center is excited to announce that the Effective Writing Practices Tutorial has been reviewed and updated by the University Writing Center staff.

This tutorial was designed to help students review common mistakes in English grammar, punctuation, organization, and writing styles, following American Psychological Association (APA) and Modern Language Association (MLA) guidelines. It is intended for self-paced learning by students. While it is not meant as a comprehensive resource on writing practices, faculty can use it as an educational resource to supplement their classroom discussions on effective writing practices.

This tutorial was funded by the Committee for the Improvement of Undergraduate Education and Faculty Development and Instructional Design Center at Northern Illinois University.  The tutorial is available at https://www.niu.edu/writingtutorial.  Many thanks to the University Writing Center staff for their assistance with this project!

In addition to the Effective Writing Practices Tutorial, the Center has also recently released or updated tutorials on Effective Presentation Skills and Academic Integrity.
