Tiffany, nothing about assessment or budgets here, I promise

I attended a couple of great sessions today. The day started out with a great session on WAC led by Richard Jewell (Inver Hills Community College) and Melissa Faulkner and Paul Anderson, both from Miami University’s Center for Writing Excellence. This combination of papers helped audience members see the commonalities and specifics of WAC work at institutions with different missions.

Whenever I go to a conference, I try to go to a session or two that’s completely unrelated to my own research in order to find out what’s going on in other parts of the profession. In this spirit, I went to a session on “Composing Multimedia Public Relations” which focused on designing public service announcements on writing related issues. While I may have chosen this session because it seemed unrelated to my work, it nevertheless got me thinking about writing center PSAs for local consumption through campus media. Wouldn’t it be cool to have as 15-30 television short that we could use on campus networks to advertise the writing center? Or to broadcast radio PSAs to advertise our services on the student station. I’ve tried the latter, but somehow it never worked out. Now I’m thinking I should’ve tried harder to get this going.

In the afternoon, an assistant professor administrator (APA) special interest session met. We discussed ways in which APAs might work use the CWPA resources in our quests for tenure. This was a great session and I’m hoping to get a similar group together at IWCA this fall. So stay tuned.

Now, gentle readers I’m off to see a little of this very big state. Somewhere in the next few days I’ll try to post my “Springer’s Final Thoughts” on this mad week.

Later, administrators! Melissa
