"Xchanges Journal"--Web Journal as the Writing Classroom: On Building an Academic Web Journal in a Collaborative Classroom
Boles, Jacoby; Newmark, Julianne
Kairos: A Journal of Rhetoric, Technology, and Pedagogy, v16 n1 Fall 2011
This website is the creation of one of Julianne Newmark's students, Jacoby Boles, the Editorial Assistant for the e-journal "Xchanges." Jacoby reflects, via this site, on his experiences as a member of the Technical Communication 371 "Publications Management" course at New Mexico Tech. This course was explicitly designed to engage students with a unique "client project," the production of an issue of the online journal "Xchanges." From a student's vantage point, this website reveals how well (and whether) the TC 371 course, "Publications Management," worked to further institutional and programmatic goals, in teaching students via a specific "client project" the nuances and technologies of document design, publication, and dissemination. By reflecting on his own experiences and by putting his own thoughts into conversation, Jacoby offers what only a student can provide: direct commentary on the TC 371 course as a hands-on learning experience for undergraduate students.
