Mike Palmquist presented workshops on writing across the curriculum last week at Gustavus Adolphus College and the University of Michigan. Sue Doe and Mike are the authors of “An Evolving Discourse: The Shifting Uses of Position Statements on Contingent Faculty,” which appeared this past month in a joint issue of the ADE Bulletin and ADFL Bulletin. The article is available at http://www.ade.org/bulletin/index.htm.
Mike Palmquist’s article, “What We Really Value: Redefining Scholarly Engagement in Tenure and Promotion Protocols,” which he co-authored with Michael Day, Susan Delagrange, Michael Pemberton, and Janice Walker, appears in the most recent edition of College Composition and Communication.
Mike’s work with the WAC Clearinghouse (now in its seventeenth year of operation and home to more than 50 scholarly books and six academic journals) was recently profiled in Inside Higher Education by blogger and librarian Barbara Fister (see http://www.insidehighered.com/blogs/library-babel-fish/bypassing-sustainability-test).
Last month, Mike presented an invited talk at Arizona State University. The subject and title of the talk was MultiModalDigitalVisualRhetoric.
Mike Palmquist took a road trip in September, presenting a WAC workshop and consulting on teaching with technology at Florida International University, presenting a talk on the future of scholarly publishing at Clemson University, and giving the keynote address at the Georgia Conference on Information Literacy in Savannah. The fourth edition of his textbook, The Bedford Researcher, also came out this month.
