NWPM Book Club Discussion


Winter 2011

A note from CRWP TC, Jeremy Hyler, coordinator of the online book discussion:

At the end of this January we will kick off an online book club discussion on the recently published book Because Digital Writing Matters (You can link to PDF versions of the introduction and chapter one via NWP website). We will be conducting an online chat via Wimba through blackboard at CMU. Also, we will have discussion threads available for each chapter. My hopes are that we not only get as many people from the CRWP, but we get participation from other sites across Michigan and perhaps even across the United States.

Join the Conversation!

  • On Saturday, January 29, 2011, from 2:30 - 4:00, Troy Hicks and Christina Cantrill presented at EduCon in Philadelphia.
