Colloquium Series

Spring 2016

Our Spring 2016 colloquium series continues our “Writing Research: Where We Are and Where We Are Heading” theme from this past Fall. This series will foster an extended conversation about the present state of writing research and productive paths for future work. Invited speakers will share their current work on writing instruction, assessment, disciplinary writing, cognitive models, or online writing and describe their vision for the next five years of writing research.  This semester we also welcome two speakers in the area of learning sciences and educational psychology, who will share their research on early learning in the STEM disciplines. You may download the series poster here.

All colloquia will be held in 207 Willard Hall at 1:00.  A discussion with the speaker will follow each presentation at 2:00.
