Across the Disciplines, v13 n4 Dec 2016
This article provides background on Louisiana State University's Communication across the Curriculum (CxC) program and details the history and logistics of its experiential learning and community outreach event--TEDxLSU. In particular, the authors provide details on the Student Creative Communications Team (SCCT) which conceptualizes, plans, and implements the broader community event with communications mentoring from CxC staff, faculty, and industry partners. In collaborative projects that span two semesters, the SCCT members engage in multiple high impact practices to improve their communication and critical thinking skills. Assessment of the SCCT's experiences has been conducted through on-line surveys of student participants and the industry partners who mentored them. The article concludes with suggestions for WAC/WID program administrators who seek ways to expand students' learning and communication experiences through engagement in campus-community events.
