Reaching Across Borders— Writing Across the College (Salt Lake Community College, UT). The Writing Across the College program collaboratively develops initiatives and programs to serve the writing needs and goals of—and to improve the culture, climate, and practice for—all stakeholder groups at SLCC: students, staff, faculty and administrators. WAC@SLCC’s vision is for all people in the SLCC community to respectfully support anyone who seeks to produce high quality, effective writing.
Fostering Student Success—Students Working in Interdisciplinary Groups (SWIG) (Queensborough Community College, Bayside, NY). Students Working in Interdisciplinary Groups promotes integrative, collaborative learning across participating classes. Students from courses in different disciplines use technology to collaborate and exchange ideas, often asynchronously, while learning to recognize and apply different disciplinary lenses in their thinking. SWIG assignments move the classes from a teacher-centered to a student-centered space where peers are the audience for learning and dialogue.
Enhancing Literature and Cultural Arts—Midlands Technical College Student English Conference (Midlands Technical College, Columbia, SC). The Midlands Technical College English Department organizes an annual Student English conference in which students across our FYC courses and our 200-level literature courses attend and present multimodal research projects, research papers, creative writing, and digital poster sessions. Students have the occasion to learn the processes and decorum of applying, preparing, presenting, and attending a professional academic conference.
