15TH ANNUAL FACULTY INSTITUTE: Examining Literacies Across the Disciplines: Building a Collaborative Community
The Fifteenth annual Faculty Institute will take place May 17-18, 2016, on the Pleasantville Campus. This year’s institute will examine literacies across the disciplines and how the creation of a collaborative student community capable of effective communications can contribute to unifying our diverse campus population. Specifically, we’ll look at writing across the curriculum, oral communications, critical reading, information and technical literacies. When combined, these multiple approaches to learning are relevant in all academic disciplines and throughout a student's undergraduate education. We also seek to explore how literacy competence can foster collaborations and bonds among professors, students, and support services (i.e., writing centers, libraries).
