Spent the whole day talking with colleagues about our Creative Writing curriculum. We each presented and made comments and suggestions about the courses we've taught over the years. We didn't finish talking about all the courses, though. It will take more than a day's meeting to iron out all the kinks.
But we did reach some sort of consensus on what we need to do to make the final revisions of our curriculum. And we also agreed to initiate some projects that will strengthen the program. Like an online publication arm for our students' creative output.
Next on the agenda are the remaining courses for review as well as the graduate degree program in Creative Writing we plan to institute by 2016.
Here's to a productive school year ahead.
