Hicks - CRWP Argument Presentation - April 2018Every day, our students are inundated by information – as well as opinions and misinformation – on their devices.

In this workshop, hosted by the Chippewa River Writing Project and CMU’s Office of Academic Development, CMU professor Troy Hicks draws from real world examples to share a wealth of insights and practical strategies to teach how to engage, craft and analyze argument in the digital world.

  • Workshop fee: $150 per person, includes fees to earn 5 SCECHs.
