Wiedenfield, Logan – CEA Forum, 2019

Connors-Manke, Beth – CEA Forum, 2019
In face-to-face conversation, it's easy to react with shock and moralism to the incivility enabled by social media, easy to lament that we live in an era when communication has gone wrong. The digital era, however has also reinvigorated voice--both written and spoken--in other, less toxic, ways. We've seen a resurgence in oral composition (think:…

Bacabac, Florence Elizabeth – CEA Forum, 2019

Based on perceived student resistance to peer review, we conducted a study to lessen this resistance and demystify the writing process for STEM students.
