New literacies and writing intensive courses
15 June 2013
Aula Magna Regina
The writing across curriculum (WAC) is crucial for liberal education. In the most cases ‘the library component’ of writing intensive courses reduced to the question ‘Did the students cite their sources correctly?’. That question is very important, but in fact we need to broad the scope of WAC to using the new sources, develop information and media literacy and struggle with students misconceptions about that literacy. In the presentation we plan to discuss strategies of curriculum development, faculty training and assessment that allow us to develop real Library-IT-Faculty collaboration at Smolny College for such programs as Writing and Thinking intensive seminar, First Year Seminar and also in perspective for all writing intensive courses.
