Jonathan Barefield, Karen Redding

Embedded Academic Support Experience (EASE), an ongoing pilot program at the University of North Georgia's Oconee Campus, integrates writing tutoring with an English Learning Support course. This presentation will explain and demonstrate how students receive dedicated, individualized tutoring and how the process provides student-focused instruction and feedback that will strengthen writing and communication skills for underprepared college students. In accordance with Complete College Georgia objectives, we predict the EASE project will enhance student performance, engagement, self-efficacy, retention, and progression. This presentation will offer early insights to higher education faculty, administrators, staff, and students of the successes and challenges of the pilot program. We will facilitate an audience participation activity and conclude with a brief question-and-answer session.
