On October 24, 2016, Dr. Mya Poe of Northeastern University gave a presentation entitled "From Vexing Questions to Intended Consequences: A Sociocultural Study of Writing Assessment." Her lecture argued for fairness as a pillar of sound writing assessment and expanded notions of how students form what she called "theories of writing." She also met with small groups of Rhetoric instructors to share her expertise and provided consulting to Engineering faculty through the AE3 program.
Congratulations to the presenters at the Annual Rhetoric Conference! Students presented on a diverse array of topics to their peers and audience members from across campus. Many thanks to the instructors who volunteered to judge the presentations. Here's to next year's conference!
