Goal one of the QEP is to strengthen the student s learning experience in reading courses. To encourage a regular exchange of instructional ideas among full-time and part-time reading faculty, ShareFest was organized. ShareFest brings together reading faculty once a month to share instructional ideas. In addition, ShareFest now has its own home in Blackboard s e-community called Virtual ShareFest. This site is an evolving clearinghouse of ideas created by and for developmental faculty.
