"Our Door Is Always Open": Aligning Literacy Learning Practices in Writing Programs and Residential Learning Communities
Voss, Julia
Across the Disciplines, v13 n4 Dec 2016
Writing studies has considered college students' literacy development as a chronological progression and as influenced by their off-campus connections to various cultural and professional communities. This project considers students' literacy development across disciplines and university activity systems in which they're simultaneously involved to look at the (missed) opportunities for fostering transfer across writing courses and residential learning communities as parallel--but rarely coordinated--high-impact practices. Rather than calling for the development of additional programs, I argue for building/strengthening connections between these existing programs by highlighting shared learning outcomes focused on literacy skills development and learning how to learn.
