What is WOLFIE?
WOLFIE (Writers’ Online Learning Forum & Information Literacy Environment) is a digital space where you can learn, play, write, collaborate, be creative, and gain confidence in writing.
Through social learning activities related to critical inquiry, writing, and information literacy, students–individually (as a “lone wolf”) and in teams (“wolf dens”)–earn rewards that represent achievements in college writing. For example, students can be asked to compose or return to already written examples of their own writing and apply concepts that they have learned in WOLFIE (in a fun and entertaining way) to their writing.
WOLFIE is supported by an S-BOLD (Stony Brook Online Learning Development Initiative) grant, and manifests the strong collaboration between the Program in Writing & Rhetoric and University Libraries in delivering integrated instruction in writing, research skills and information literacy practices.
