The Miami University English department and Academic Technology Services developed new laptop classrooms, digital writing curricula, and instructor training programs. Currently 30 percent of all required first-year writing courses are taught in networked laptop classrooms. We will focus on English/IT collaborations, instructor preparation, and the impact on student learning. Qualitative and quantitative data, including video interview clips with students, will be shared.
