One busy summer

I've been a particular slacker in my blogging this summer. That is unfortunate, because I think I do have a great deal to report.

I shall summarize it, however in an ordered list, and will get back to it when I am not on vacation:


  1. We completed our Student Writing Center advertising video. It is a bit stilted at times, but that gives it a bit of charm or perhaps just reality. The Peer Writing Advisers (from now on to be called PWAs) collaborated on it quite effectively, I think.


  2. We have hired 6 new PWAs. Staff education begins in earnest the first week of the semester.


  3. The Student Writing Center was the lucky recipient of two iMacs, two iPods, and a new video camera to create useful online resources for student writers and writing advisers.


  4. We wrapped up a successful summer of tutoring.


  5. We conducted a workshop on self-reflective writing in order to improve how students make use of it for their portfolios. It was the first thing recorded with the iPod technology and is currently distributed to the PWAs and Faculty Writing Advisers (FWAs) via passworded podcast. I apologize that I cannot make it open to the whole world, but I don't think that is fair to the participants.


  6. I had the honor to be the outside reviewer of Lansing Community College's (LCC) Capital Writing Institute last week. I also conducted a program review for the LCC Writing Center. It was great to get work with Jill Pennington, LCC WC director, for more than just the few days I normally see her at various conferences.
