tracked in this platform. At the time of document production, the collaboration was narrowed to involve two editors so as to produce a final product by a given date. At the narrowest point of the collaboration (completing and publishing this document), the editors worked to capture the essence of the group voice, to smooth out transitions among the topics on collaborative writing, and to include additional examples that represented a variety of disciplines. Now that the document is completed, we have set up our collaborative wiki site to allow others to join in the dialogue about collaborative writing.


Synthesizing the work of the seminar into this document also posed challenges.


The first challenge was how to author the document in such a way that upheld a collective voice while still respecting individual contributions. This process of final compilation meant that editorial decisions had to be made, such as shifting point-of- view, rewording for parallel structure, and deleting redundancies. A second challenge was how to take a wealth of collaboration from a 5 day workshop and translate it into a manageable and streamlined resource. The attempt to efficiently and effectively translate the collaboration into a document picked up momentum once we set some parameters and frameworks. Once we decided on a template for organization and a method for including sample lesson plans and rubrics, the document began to emerge. Establishing an organizational framework allowed us a way to split and parcel all the participants’ contributions. Another challenge was representing a diversity of voices and perspectives in the


document for a wide range of disciplines. Even though participants in the May seminar came from a variety of departments and experience levels, our group was by no means representative of all the fields of study on campus. As a result, we strove to make our examples as generic as possible for wide application. However, we are certain that a wider array of best practices are also available and not represented in this final document.
