    1.) Dependent Verification Audit deadline extended to Sept. 12

    The University of Louisville is in the process of conducting a Dependent Verification Audit. Thank you to those who have completed the verification process. Anyone covered under the UofL Health Plan who has dependents enrolled in health, dental, vision and/or dependent life insurance must provide supporting documentation to ensure continued coverage for their dependent(s). If you do not have dependents covered, you will not have to take action. The deadline to verify dependents has been extended to Sept. 12. If you have not been contacted by AON Hewitt, you do not need to verify dependents at this time.

    Training and Workshops

    3.) Part-time faculty: Workshop available to connect in-class writing to student learning content

    September 8, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning, Ekstrom Library #244

    This workshop is based on the premise that attention to practicing writing can promote students’ deep learning processes. Writing is an effective way for students to both learn and to demonstrate their learning, yet teaching students writing can be daunting for instructors teaching content-focus courses. Participants will engage in some writing-to-learn practices to support student learning, faculty writing, and faculty development. Some of these practices include: freewriting and think pieces.

The National Endowment for the Arts included him for its 2014 Jazz Masters award, the nation’s highest honor in jazz.
