Interested in Contributing to the Literacy in Learning Exchange?
Vignettes on the Literacy in Learning Exchange are meant to provide a snapshot or close up of an activity or event that occurred as part of your learning community, and that contributed to student learning. In capturing these memorable or transformative moments we intend to invite the Exchange community into conversations around the challenges and lessons learned.
We invite you to submit a draft of a vignette for consideration on the site to email@example.com.
