The burdens and opportunities of renewal are central concerns for all college English faculty. When we rethink our practices creatively, revise old assumptions, and remind ourselves of what drives us, great things may happen. We invite you to share ideas and practices concerning how to Re Form, Re View, and Re New the teaching of college English.
Re Form: Just about everyone has ideas about how to reform college English instruction, not least our students.
