Three current CRDM students just presented at the Carolinas Writing Program Administrators 13th Annual Fall Conference earlier this week at Wildacres Retreat Center.
Kendra Andrews, second-year CRDM student, presented with CRDM alum, Teaching Assistant Professor Dana Gierdowski on how to improve responses in professional development evaluation. Their presentation is titled “‘Yay! Free Food!’: Improving Responses in the Professional Development Evaluation.”
Chen Chen, third-year student, presented “WPA-L: The Professional Lore of Rhet/Comp.”
At the same round-table discussions, Meridith Reed, also third-year student, presented “Practicing What We Know: Examining GTAs’ Disciplinary Knowledge of Writing Studies.”
CRDM students and alums have been actively involved in the Carolinas WPA organization. Currently three CRDM alums serve on the Carolinas WPA Board: Dana Gierdowski, Robin Snead, and Kevin Brock.
