    Building a Space for Digital FYC Resources

    Tuesday, March 22nd, 2011 | aristotlejulep

    Hi everyone! Here’s what I’m interested in doing…

    I am interested in building a sustainable, searchable online database of resources for teaching writing/composing with/about digital technology. Initially, I’d like to focus on resources for First Year Composition (FYC), but if successful this project could expand to encompass advanced composition and other writing courses.

    As an instructor who has taught FYC for eight years at several different universities, I believe this kind of resource is sorely needed now. Speaking as an instructor who has taught in traditional and class environments, I also believe that a resource such as this will be in even greater demand in the future as more and more universities teach courses in hybrid and online environments, and as more FYC courses take up science and technology themes and integrate digital composition projects.

    This is an enormous project that would take many years and much labor to plan and implement. I’d like help from THATCampers in getting this project from the idea stage to the planning stage.  What should I do first? What resources are out there already for me to look at? Where do I look for funding? Etc….
