Faculty Present on Writing Pedagogy at Crossings Conference

On April 2, 2017, Saralinda Kiser and Amy Pason presented on their strategies in teaching social science writing to undergraduates at the 2017 Crossings Conference held at UNR.  The Crossings Conference is sponsored by the Northern California Writing Centers Association/other west coast Writing Center Associations and was locally hosted by faculty and students from UNR’s Writing Center and Communication and Composition in the Disciplines programs.  Kiser and Pason presented an hour-long workshop relating public speaking pedagogy to their experiences in teaching students to write social science literature reviews in the COM 212: Introduction to Communication Studies Research course.  This conference was an opportunity for Kiser and Pason to learn from composition instructors as well as to share their knowledge and overlap of strategies from a communication studies perspective.
