Here's the announcement I've just sent to the SFU community. As you can
imagine, we are very, very pleased at having someone of Amanda's calibre
join us as we prepare to launch the Student Learning Commons service at SFU.
I am very pleased to announce that Dr. Amanda Goldrick-Jones has been
appointed as the Writing Services Coordinator for the SFU Student Learning
Commons, where she will be responsible for planning and providing student
writing support programs and services.
Dr. Goldrick-Jones comes to us from the University of Winnipeg, where she
has been Director and Associate Professor in the Centre for Academic
Writing. She has extensive experience administering, developing and
delivering writing programs, services and courses for academic and
professional audiences, and is currently President of the Canadian
Association of Teachers of Technical Writing (CATTW).
She holds a PhD in Communications and Rhetoric from Rensselaer Polytechnic
Institute, an MA and BA in English Language, both from UBC, and is
currently completing a Graduate Certificate in Technology-Based Distributed
Learning in the Master of Educational Technology program at UBC.
Dr. Goldrick-Jones will begin working with the Student Learning Commons on
a part-time, distance basis as of May 1, 2006 and will take up her
full-time continuing position on campus on July 4, 2006.
