Learning Center Experience
By Barbara c.g. Green, Assistant Chair
As we all move through the various journeys in life we are
meant to take, there is but one constant: change. Nothing ever stays the same, and while some
may be fearful or hesitant of change, change can bring many new opportunities. One such example of change bringing
opportunity happened in the School of General Education. Specifically, the Composition Department has
launched new versions of its main courses, CM 107 and CM 220, to engage
students more dynamically in their pursuit of personal, academic, and career
success using written communication.
Based upon extensive research into best
practices of online writing instruction and student need, faculty,
leadership, and curriculum have been working tirelessly through each revision so
that the course content evolves with the changing needs of our students. Our driving force has also been to provide
composition courses that guide and nurture our students toward becoming
stronger, more effective communicators not only in CM 107 and or CM 220 but in
the workforce and in life. After all,
writing is all around us. Just because a
composition class ends, the need for clear, thoughtful writing does not.
With that in mind, students will focus on writing business
communications as well as academic essays that will help develop and fortify
good writing habits to aid them in being successful in their education and in
their careers as well as helping to shape well-rounded global citizens who are aware
of diverse audiences.
In addition to the revision of CM 107 and CM 220, the
Composition Department has also launched a Twitter account
(@KUComposition). The goal of this
venture is to connect with students regarding first year writing courses, WAC
(Writing Across the Curriculum), composition studies, and all the wonderful
things that composition faculty are doing to help their students succeed. We hope that you will join us by following
the Composition Department on Twitter and participating in sharing thoughts,
questions, writing resources, and anything else composition related so that we
can all take part in a dynamic dialogue about writing and its role inside and
outside of the classroom.
With all this change happening in the Composition
Department, we also wanted to remind you about some of the other courses that
we continue to offer outside of CM 107 and CM 220, in order to provide
education and fine-tuning in other areas of composition. One example is CM 230: Creative Writing—Fiction
and Nonfiction Narrative. This course
focuses on teaching the elements of storytelling that can be applied both
personally and professionally. Other examples
are CM 240: Technical Communication, CM 241: Foundations of Technical
Communications, and CM 250: Fundamentals of Grammar and Editing which provide a
more focused and detailed look at both workplace communication and refining the
basics of communication.
Between the new versions of first year courses,
opportunities to share and learn via social media, and the existing
upper-division courses, the Composition Department offers something for
everyone where learning and developing writing and communication skills are
concerned. As we move forward, we will
continue to utilize change as a positive opportunity to serve our students’ written
