From The New Editor

Greetings upon the advent of the new school year!

I’m thrilled to take the helm of TechStyle, and I’d like to announce a couple of changes for the new school year.  First of all, we’re inaugurating a new leadership structure that will include “Section Editors,” content editors who are responsible for soliciting, curating, and editing content within the different TechStyle categories.  Section Editors may also take responsibility for publicity and production.  This structure echoes the original editorial structure of TS, but looks less like a traditional newspaper.

We have two new sections!  The first is “Tools and Methods,” pulling together stories, features, and announcements about the digital tools we use and want to share.  The second new section is “Britt Alumni,” a place for us to catch up with the amazing things that former Brittain Fellows are doing now.  Stay tuned here for Britt Alumni news, reflections, and announcements.

The first new Section Editor I’d like to introduce is Joy Robinson, a second-year Britt.  She is piloting the new “Tools & Methods” section, and will be writing regularly about digital tools and methods for teaching and research.  I’ll be introducing new section editors in subsequent posts.

Finally, I’m pleased to announce that we have THREE new posts here for the new school year: Jon’s Kotchian’s last installment of his fascinating series on teaching composition through interactive fiction, Joy Robinson’s introduction to the T&M section and her inaugural post, and my piece on why I teach a composition class about college.  We hope that you enjoy the new content.

As always, stay in touch!
