I am following this for relevant information. Thank you !
There’s a fairly long history of using multi-user chats for co-mentoring and professional development, even within rhet/comp. With Becky Rickly and Eric Crump, I have a chapter called Creating a Virtual Academic Community: Scholarship and Community in Wide-Area Multiple-User Synchronous Discussions in Computer Networking and Scholarly Communication in the Twenty- First-Century University. eds Teresa M.Harrison and Timothy Stephen. Albany, New York: State University of New York Press, 1996, for example, and although not a lot has been published about The Tuesday Cafe and the TechRhet Barn, academic mentoring conversations in real time chat flourished on MOOs, mainly during the 90s.
A couple of these links might help.
It might help the article if you acknowledge that this online chat-based co-mentoring has a rich history.
Most folks in the discipline call it first-year composition (FYC) rather than Freshman Writing, which is both old school and sexist. So change that?
Edited — thanks!
I would also like to see a definition of #alt-ac and perhaps a brief engagement with that realm. It seems to me many contingent FYC instructors are considering/have ended up in these roles.
Perhaps a discussion of why distant reading would be informative here?
