May be of interest to some- will certainly illuminate the things we should consider when we create assignments.
How do our students do research-based assignments?
What really happens between the time when you assign a research paper and when it is handed in to you by a student? In this presentation, Maura Smale (New York City College of Technology) and Mariana Regalado (Brooklyn College) share results from their study of undergraduate work habits at six CUNY colleges, including Hunter College. Data gathered via interviews, photo surveys, and mapping diaries reveal much about student writing and response to research assignments, and students’ experiences with and ideas about academic support.
A follow-up discussion will consider the following:
- What kinds of support for research and writing do students take advantage of and what do they wish for?
- How do students describe their engagement with research assignments?
- Where do faculty and student expectations for researchassignments align, and where is there friction?
- Is it possible to shift student perception of their success andchallenges in completing research assignments?Presenters:Maura A. Smale, PhD, MLIS, Assistant Professor

We are pleased to announce the launch of the inaugural issue of the Journal of Interactive Technology and Pedagogy, which may be found at cuny.is/jitp.
The CFP for our second issue is located at cuny.is/jitpguidelines. We are committed first and foremost to teaching and learning, and intend that the journal itself – both in process and in product – provide opportunities to reveal, reflect on, and revise academic publication and classroom practice.
We would appreciate it if you would help spread the word about this new publication and we thank you for your participation and continued support. Please send us your feedback via email at email@example.com, via Twitter @JITPedagogy, or via the comments sections on the site.
