WPA Task Force on Students' Research and Human Subjects Issues in Composition Courses

Invitations to participate

With the help of Shirley Rose, I’m coordinating a WPA task force on students’ research and human-subjects issues in first-year composition courses, and we’re seeking composition professionals who have experience with Institutional Review Board (IRB) policies and procedures. Specifically, we’re seeking volunteers for the task force who plan to attend the WPA conference in Chattanooga in July. In the months preceding this drafting session, we’re also seeking documents and suggestions from WPAs and composition instructors who are already working to address the problem and goals outlined in the attached overview.

If you’d like to send useful material, join the task force that will meet at the WPA conference, and/or otherwise participate in these efforts, please contact Tony Baker (abaker@tntech.edu).
