Jill Heney, Heidi Naylor and Debra Purdy gave a panel presentation at the Computers and Writing Conference at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia, in May. Their talk was titled “Engaging Pedagogies for Student Success in Undergraduate Service Courses: Using Practical Wisdom to Make Good Courses Great.” It presented findings from two studies, one funded by the National Science Foundation, both investigating student participation and engagement in introductory service courses. The studies helped shed light on instructional factors that foster persistence, engagement, and success in early-stage college study.
