As the University makes the transition to a new content management system for all of its official web content (viz., English Language and Literature), we in the First-Year Writing Program are also changing up some of the auxiliary online platforms we will be using for curating teaching materials, posting announcements about activities in the program, and building a repository of resources useful to students enrolled in ENGL120 and ENGL121. This blog is one such platform. Into this space, we will be publishing periodic announcements about various program initiatives, such as General Education and program-level assessment, ongoing curricular revisions, professional development opportunities, including teaching circles, workshops, and reading groups, and much more. In addition to this blog, we are developing a FYWP knowledge base wiki, which will be introduced at the Fall 2013 program retreat.
Watch for more announcements here later this summer.
