Event Details

*Registration closes 1/20/14*

From Best Practices to Assessment and Research.


Through workshops presenters will share their best practices and engage participants in an activity: complete an exercise, respond to a paper, examine an assignment, or write informally.

Workshops focus on best practices for teaching writing across the curriculum, and on projects that assess or research teaching. The morning of the conference will be devoted to best practices, while the afternoon will feature assessment or research designs developed by faculty across disciplines.
