An Analysis of the National "TYCA Research Initiative Survey Section III: Technology and Pedagogy" in Two-Year College English Programs
Millward, Jody
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v35 n4 p372-397 May 2008
In 2005, supported by a Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) Research Initiative Grant and Two-Year College English Association (TYCA) volunteers, the TYCA Research Initiative Committee distributed the first national survey of two-year college writing programs. This online survey explored two-year college programs, praxis, and satisfaction levels within four areas identified by the CCCC grant proposal: assessment, technology and pedagogy, writing across the curriculum/writing in the disciplines (WAC/WID), and teaching conditions. The goals were to identify shared challenges and effective practices in these key areas, suggest potential areas for research, and provide a foundation for advocacy on the local, state, and national levels. This analysis of the technology and pedagogy section of the TYCA national survey of writing programs covers online and onsite uses of technologies, multimodal essays and electronic portfolios, pedagogical training in the uses of technologies, intersections of training and curriculum innovation (i.e., electronic portfolios and multimodal compositions), and two-year college satisfaction levels with the integration of technology. (Contains 5 tables and 10 notes.)
