CFP: Teaching Transfer: Interdisciplinary Partnerships, Digital Venues and Activism

Panel Description: 

Interdisciplinary and community projects create meaningful student collaborations, work as sites for promoting learning transfer and help participants understand complex ideas about texts, text-making and creative activity.  When partnerships include service learning, students become activists who create texts for a real audience and purpose. Our work with an AIDS foundation and animal shelter demonstrates this.
