According to Project Administrator Judy Williamson, "We rethought our approach in order to be as inclusive as possible: thus the concept of super-sites, which came our way when Marty Finkelstein at the New Jersey Institute for Collegiate Teaching and Learning at Seton Hall University suggested that NJIC TL be an umbrella site." The advantage to this approach, says Williamson, is "a greater emphasis on collaboration, [so] we can meet the needs of more institutions who can be partners in Epiphany research and program development. The emphasis on collaboration seems only natural given our field."
Williamson is also quick to recognize the support of the Alliance for Computers and Writing, both officially and in less formal ways. "Epiphany [is] a collaborative venture that rhizomatically taps into the ACW," says Williamson. "Epiphany is definitely community property. Everyone needs to know what's there for them so they can join in at whatever level they wish, from providing essays and ideas for the Field Guide to sending links for Web pages, and so on."
