FIRST EVENT SCHEDULED FOR APRIL 11. DETAILS BELOW.
We are pleased to announce the WAW 2022 Spring Workshop series via Zoom. The goal of this series is to provide an opportunity for our community to explore WAW-focused literature in a synchronous group setting, both to find practical applications to implement in our teaching and to inform our own WAW projects. Graduate students and faculty within our WAW community select articles and discussion prompts to guide and engage us in conversations. These papers are a starting point to explore and examine one WAW area of scholarship and/or teaching pedagogy, and topics chosen will resonate across WAW experience levels and institutional contexts.
Each event will be facilitated by members of the WAW Standing Group Steering Committee. They will take place on Monday evenings from 7:00 to 8:00 EST and can be accessed here:
We hope you consider joining our session; everyone is welcome, whether you are a long-time group member, just joined this year, or are simply WAW-curious. We’ll post more details here as the dates approach.
