As you did for the August 2010 residency, you will self-organize for the Peer Workshops . Use the comments space under this post to discuss what you might like to do or discus in peer workshops, topics you might like to cover, organization by genre or subgenre or technical question or whatever. You can also post a new blog entry with that information, so that others can comment and join.
There are two blocks of time on the schedule for the workshops (Wednesday and Friday afternoons, 2 ½ hours each). You just need to decide how you're going to use that time and let Laurel know if your group is going to have any unusual needs in terms of technology, space, etc. Keep in mind that the incoming first-semester students have no frame of reference for this, and need guidance from some of the more seasoned students (this was a comment in the residency evaluations).
Suggestions were also made in the residency evaluations that the Peer Workshops be led by a mentor, but that would render the sessions as traditional workshops and not peer-to-peer sessions. Any student is welcome to step up to be a leader of a peer group, however you wish to organize.
