The Center for Teaching & Learning in collaboration with various other campus units invites faculty to the Winter Institute on Teaching & Technology (WITT). The topic for this year`s event is:

Critical Reading in a Digital Age
Fellow faculty members and students will discuss how new technologies are impacting the act of reading as it relates to teaching and learning. What techniques do faculty use to help students become better readers? Can blogs and wikis be used as reading assignments? Are students reading less now than in previous generations or simply using different delivery mechanisms? These are some of the questions panelists will address during this session.

Faculty panelists will include:
Kathy Archer, Biology Dept.
Dario DelPuppo, LACS Dept.
Diana Evans, Political Science Dept.
Scott Gac, History & American Studies Dept.
Chris Hager, English Dept.
Tom Harrington, LACS Dept.
