Presentation Description

How can we make our already limited face-to-face teaching time really matter? At Towson University’s Cook Library, we’ve piloted a model of support for our composition classes in which we combine electronic modules with referred consultations so that those students with the greatest need get the most personalized face-to-face attention. Also, as an embedded strategy, this approach affords composition faculty and librarians more opportunities for collaboration. In this presentation, I’ll share the process of making this model a more and more perfect fit for our first-year students’ needs.
