The 21st Century Writing Program: Collaboration for the Common Good
Moberg, Eric
Online Submission
The purpose of this report is to review the literature on theoretical frameworks, best practices, and conceptual models for the 21st century collegiate writing program. Methods include electronic database searches for recent and historical peer-reviewed scholarly literature on collegiate writing programs. The author analyzed over 65 sources from the century, mostly within the last three years. The results were clear and consistent. The author recommends a collegial and comprehensive collegiate writing program that begins with entrance and placement assessments and continues through culminating papers, capstones, theses, dissertations, staff development, and even faculty mentoring. Collaboration for the common good will be paramount. Implications for practice also include strategic planning, staff development, and release time. Whether writing centers stay within their bricks and mortar, move online, or blend their service delivery, the quality of their services will remain an essential part of the success of their host school's quest for the liberation of the mind and growth of the student, which is a good starting point for the mission statement of a 21st century writing program.
