Embracing Innovation: Transcending Tradition in Twenty-First Century Higher Education
The Consortium for Critical Reading, Writing, and Thinking will present its fourth annual interdisciplinary conference on Friday, October 28, 2016. The primary objectives of this year's conference are to explore innovative pedagogical practices that both enrich and transcend traditional teaching methods, and to inspire a contemplative, cross-disciplinary dialogue regarding higher education in the twenty-first century.
If you have been considering requesting a visit to your writing program by a team from the WPA Consultant-Evaluator Service, I will be available at the upcoming conference in Raleigh to meet with you to discuss your goals for a visit and answer any questions you may have. We can arrange a meeting time in advance or seize a good opportunity sometime during the conference.
