Presented by Susan Adams Delaney, Assistant Professor, Department of Writing
The ethical and effective integration of sources is fundamental to all academic writing and one of the most difficult intellectual challenges that students face. This workshop will emphasize the importance of recognizing and communicating disciplinary expectations as faculty share their own concerns and successful pedagogical practices. Faculty will learn about current research in this area (e.g. Howard et al) and try out different activities for assisting students in learning to weave their own ideas with those of sources.
