PUB101: The Publication of Self in Everyday Life is founded on a radically student-centered model, in which students build out their own personal cyberinfrastructure, then elaborate editorial voice, design and identity, message and audience: building, reflecting, and sharing within a community of practice in the course. Two concerns are ever-present: How to assess the myriad forms of writing and how students meet the course's institutional requirements (specifically essays and peer reviews) in an online environment -- reconciling individual expression and development with the needs of a foundations publishing course.

Assessment is continually evolving as learning goals are expressed more in terms of disposition and confidence than skills and abilities. Constructively interacting and learning through contemporary media, and increasingly through open access, is a core component of PUB101. Through experience, evaluations, and research into other academic programs also piloting open learning constructs, we have gathered our insights, but also questions to share at Open Ed.
