We are seeking additional participants for a roundtable, Beyond Grades: Assessment Roundtable for Teachers of Literature.

Our roundtable seeks to provide hands-on experience to attendees with developing course-level assessment techniques for literature courses and to encourage a broader conversation about the role of assessment in literature programs and at the university.

We have two participants, who are both professors of literature and experienced with assessment. We would like to have 4-5 participants.

If interested, please email a brief statement of interest to:
Marianne Cotugno ( and Kristin Jacobson (

We can submit our proposal after December 1, and must submit it prior to January 31, 2014. We would prefer to submit a proposal prior to December 15, so please let us know if you are interested.
