Abstract:  Effective written communication retains its priority as both an educational outcome and currency of meaningful academic and professional discourse.  Meanwhile, historic concerns over student writing also persist, exacerbated by ever-shifting and evolving communication modalities.  How are these shifts impacting the landscape of academic writing and what are the implications for faculty?  This event is offered through the UNH C-WRET Interdisciplinary Working Group for Writing Research, Engagement, and Teaching, and sponsored, in part, with a grant from the Collaborative Research Excellence (CoRE) Initiative.
