The long silence

Pardon my silence, but this has been a rather busy semester. It is sad when I can't even make time to write.

I recently returned from CCCC at New Orleans. The conference was excellent, and I was lucky to attend some very good sessions. I also had the opportunity to be at the IWCA booth with Michele Eodice, as well as to attend the IWCA SIG on Friday evening. I did break away from the conference a couple of times to indulge my passion for photography. I did record a session with Andrea Lunsford, Lisa Ede, Michele Eodice, Kami Day, Michael Spooner, and Kathy Yancey about collaborative writing. It was one of those sessions that gets you thinking, and I've been thinking about what it is we mean by "collaboration" in writing. The idea behind the session was to hear what authors who write together think about collaboration, but, of course, this quickly branched into the notion of what collaborative learning and writing are for our students. I'm hoping to do some writing on the topic (yeah right!) In any case, I recorded the session. I don't think, however, that I'll ask permission to post it on PeerCentered since it doesn't really relate to peer tutoring--or maybe it does.

Hmm.

This weekend, some of the SLCC Peer Writing Advisors and I are headed off to Boise State University for the Rocky Mountain Peer Tutoring Conference. We are taking our iPod recorders, so we will be recording various sessions for PeerCentered.
