The Converging Literacies Center: An Integrated Model for Writing Programs
Carter, Shannon; Dunbar-Odom, Donna
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, v14 n1 Fall 2009
The Converging Literacies Center (CLiC) is a deeply integrated model for writing programs, bringing together the writing center, first-year writing, basic writing, professional development activities, graduate coursework, and research activities to re-imagine and support twenty-first-century literacies. What is unique about CLiC is not merely the extent of this integration but the non-traditional populations from which research and best practices emerge: The vast majority of our undergraduates are first-generation college students. This webtext discusses the need for programs like this one as well as the specific steps we have taken to develop CLiC (and why). It includes video, audio, web, and text-based media elements.
