The New Research Summit 2006 is coming.

We’re talking about teaching writing and research in the era of new media and technology.

This is the beginning of a conversation that will continue at the University of Oregon.

We have set aside Friday, May 12, 10-2, for our face-to-face meeting and lunch. There will be no charge for attendance and lunch will be provided.

On our way to that date, this blog will have resources, links, and ideas, and be available for your comments about how web sites, blogs, wikis, Google, myspace.com, streaming video, podcasts, and the rest of technology do, could, or should affect our teaching of research writing.

The Planning Committee:

We are: Suzanne Clark (English) and Carol Hixson (Library), Instructional Technology Fellows for 2005-2006; The Center for the Teaching of Writing (John Gage, Director and Nicole Malkin, Adm. Assistant); the New Media and Writing Group (Raphael Raphael, Carter Soles, and Kom Kunyosying).

As participants, you are speakers, bloggers, and discussants, professors, librarians, graduate students, and students.

Our May 12 speakers include:: James Crosswhite, English; Carol Hixson and Heather Briston, UO Library; Carter Soles and Kom Kunyosying, English; A panel chaired by Raphael Raphael and including John Gage and Michael Aronson, English; Mary Fechner, Research Office; Jeff Magoto, Yamada Language Center; and our keynote speaker, Lisa Ede, from Oregon State University English Department, with Michael Faris, OSU.
