Title: Web Writing: Why and How for Liberal Arts Teaching and Learning
Date: Tuesday, June 18, 2013, 2-3 pm EDT
Location: Hosted online via NITLE’s videoconferencing platform
Why should (or shouldn't) we integrate the Internet into our writing assignments? How does student learning and faculty pedagogy change when we share drafts and comments on the public web? What types of authoring, annotating, and publishing tools deepen -- or distract from -- a thoughtful liberal arts education? Jack Dougherty, Associate professor of educational studies, and Jason Jones, Director of Educational Technology, both of Trinity College, invite readers and contributors to shape the direction of a born-digital book-in-progress, Web Writing: Why & How for Liberal Arts Teaching & Learning, sponsored by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut.
Faculty, instructional technologists, librarians and others from the NITLE Network interested in web-based writing across the curriculum, ebooks, and open access publishing should attend this seminar. Attendance by institutional teams is encouraged; individuals are also welcome to participate.
Please register online by Friday, June 14, 2013. Participation in NITLE Shared Academics seminars is open to all active member institutions of the NITLE Network as a benefit of membership and as space allows. No additional registration fee applies.
