Surveying the landscape and creating technology spaces in a regional university FYC program

Session abstract or description: 

This panel traces the steps taken and the hurdles encountered by three former and current FYC coordinators on the way toward developing an FYC composition program at a regional state university that can adequately engage and challenge its students, and prepare them for digital rhetoric and composition practices in their college careers and beyond. By creating context for our current program, and sharing the successes and failures of our attempts to develop a more tech-accessible FYC program, we hope to reiterate the necessity for conversation about technological access and focus on digital literacies, and reach out to offer, and request, assistance to/from those in similar programmatic situations.
