The Writing Initiative was created with the goal to improve student writing across disciplines, and as a part of this initiative, the Writing Connections program was started. The Writing Connection involves collaborating with area schools to share the best practices in teaching writing across disciplines.
In 2013, we've expanded our outreach to include 2 and 4-year colleges in NJ and NY to share best practices in Library and Academic Support collaboration.
Our roundtable discussion with librarians, faculty and writing center staff will be held on Thursday, June 13, 2013 at Passaic County Community College, from 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM.
The topics we will focus on include:
1. creating sustainable partnerships between library and writing center programs
2. fostering faculty support and collaboration
3. improving information literacy skills across the curriculum
The goals of this meeting are to establish a connection among college libraries and writing/academic support programs that will continue into the future, share best practices and discuss challenges that we face in library and academic support collaboration.
The next post will share the findings of that meeting.
