I hope that your fall semester is going well. It was great seeing many of you in June at the LSAC National Academic Assistance Training Workshop in Las Vegas.
This fall, I would like to publish another issue of The Learning Curve, the newsletter of the AALS Section on Academic Support. I encourage you to submit articles on topics in the field of Academic Support. For instance, I welcome articles on current research projects in the ASP community and articles on particular ASP insights from those in the field. The newsletter is a rather informal publication and is a great vehicle for ASPers to discuss their current research interests or other noteworthy topics.
Several participants at the LSAC Workshop told me how they appreciate the
newsletter and the insights provided in the articles.
Short articles (i.e., from a few paragraphs to a few pages) are preferred, but the newsletter is published electronically, so we may be able to accommodate longer submissions. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about whether you should submit a particular piece.
Attached in the last issue (spring 2005); you can access previous editions of the newsletter at the ASP website: http://www.law.umkc.edu/aals-asp.htm. (Follow the links to The Learning Curve.)
Please e-mail me your submissions by FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 18; I would like to publish an issue in December.
Again, please contact me if you have any questions. I received some excellent contributions for our last issue, and I look forward to receiving your submissions this time.
Thanks, Natt Gantt
