First Annual Writing Initiative Summer Institute

June 9-12, 2008

This four day institute was hosted by the Title V Writing Initiative with a targeted audience of faculty and support staff who will be directly involved in developing the Writing Intensive courses over the next 4 years that are at the center of the Initiative.

Through a combination of hands-on and informational sessions presented by the Initiative staff, PCCC staff and guest speakers, this institute prepared faculty for the curricular redesign and implementation of these Gen Ed courses.

Selected resources and files from the institute are available as downloads on the WRITING RESOURCES page.
