Invitations to participate
With the help of Shirley Rose, Iâ€™m coordinating a WPA task force on studentsâ€™ research and human-subjects issues in first-year composition courses, and weâ€™re seeking composition professionals who have experience with Institutional Review Board (IRB) policies and procedures. Specifically, weâ€™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, weâ€™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 youâ€™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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
