Welcome to the listserv! Some of your info. is very helpful to me in my
research project to find out more about very recent (within 5-10 yrs)
developments in writing instruction at Cdn. Universities. (Refer to
>I had a whole stream going at
>Lethbridge -- a dozen new courses in under 6 years, including things like

Could you go into some more details, perhaps a list, of the courses that

Your answers, if you have time to give them, would be very helpful, Jennifer.
