Workshop Presentation

Creative Research Assignments to Encourage Your Students’ Voices

Where are our students’ voices in their work? This hands-on session offers creative research assignments that encourage students to develop and articulate their own voice. Learn successful strategies from your colleagues that ultimately discourage plagiarism by encouraging original work.

Below is the PowerPoint presentation created by Jackie Kremer and Christina McGowan, presented May 18, 2011 at the Center for Academic Excellence Summer Institute for Integrative Learning. Also below is the accompanying handout.
