Do you want to create your Composition course using familiar tools – like YouTube, Google Docs, and Evernote – woven into vetted instructional content? Are you looking to engage your students with multimodal assignments that move composition off the page and into the real world? Do you want to track more than just the grade with a progress app that shows student engagement and time in course?
MindTap for Composition creates real writers using everyday tools, and helps you teach your course, for your students. Join us for a three-part webinar series led by instructors currently using MindTap to learn how they easily set their course, elevate thinking and writing, and promote better outcomes with MindTap.

Webinar 2: Changing Course and Changing Opportunities for Student Success: Elevating Students’ Critical Thinking and Writing with MindTap
Friday, October 3rd, 1:00-2:00pm EST
Presenter: Ulanda Forbess, Dallas County Community College
Join us for a peer user’s approach to teaching critical thinking and writing in Composition using the pre-built activities in MindTap along with personal content to create a highly personalized learning experience designed to engage students. The content design focuses on promoting ideas and thinking outside of the standard five-paragraph essay, moving students into analysis and logic, where we can uncover their true potential and thereby increasing their academic advantage.
Webinar 3: Tapping into Student Success: Using MindTap to Promote Richer Learning Outcomes
Date/Time: Friday, October 24th, 1:00-2:00pm EST
Presenter: Emily Beard, Saginaw Valley State University
Description: With each class we teach, we introduce a specific set of course goals or outcomes for students to learn during the semester. Often we are teaching these same outcomes across multiple class sections, with many students learning at a variety of levels. Using the Progress App within MindTap, individual class analytics, as well as individual student progress or challenges can be analyzed, so a more unique and tailored approach can be taken to promote student success.
