Welcome! This blog is my professional space for discussing the teaching of writing and various topics that arise through my work as Coordinator of a Quality Enhancement Plan [QEP] at Albany State University in Albany, GA.
Presently, our main point of discussion is the learning theory of Connectivism, as written about by George Siemens in his Dec. 2004 article Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age. Here at Albany State, I and my fellow Coordinator Keith Hamon have been directed to construct a Writing Across the Curriculum program that uses student writing in an online environment to supplement classroom work. We work with about 10 faculty each year--this is our second year--to help infuse into their syllabi significant writing opportunities that support what the students are receiving in class.
