WORK IN PROGRESS/UNDER CONSIDERATION (in order of expected publication date)
Jamieson, Sandra & Rebecca Moore Howard. Struggling with Sources: Teaching after the Citation Project. This book is based on findings from Citation Project and related research (PIL, LILAC Project, etc). Drawing on years of conducting faculty development workshops in the US and abroad and building from the pedagogy in their first collaborative publication (The Bedford Guide to Teaching Writing in the Disciplines: An Instructor’s Desk Reference), Jamieson and Howard imagine this book being used in various forms of faculty development from pre-semester workshops to brown bag series. Chapters invite faculty to rethink the ways they teach students to find, assess, select, and work with sources (from summary to citation); develop strategies for helping students engage with ideas, develop perspectives, and integrate ideas across a variety of genres; and revise textual and multimedia assignments to help avoid the disengagement that can lead to plagiarism or copyright violation.
“Sitting In on Classes.” A study of mid-career faculty who take undergraduate courses outside of their own departments and areas of specialization, and the pedagogical consequences of that experience. Currently gathering interviews for this project.
