The Research Proposition: Incorporating Writing in Engineering Courses

Recently, Dr. David Ollis, Distinguished University Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, presented on his "Research Proposition" courses in the CBE graduate curriculum. During the presentation, he summarized 25 years of experience in writing and oral presentation instruction for formal graduate education in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. 


Brown Bag Series


Once each month during the academic year, the CWSP holds an informal brown-bag lunch discussion from noon to 1 p.m. Typically, a box lunch is provided to the first ten participants who sign up. Most sessions showcase the work of the previous year’s participants in the CWSP Faculty Seminar, who, in pairs, present the results of their course improvements and offer instructional strategies that other faculty can adopt in their instruction. Other sessions focus on topics of general interest to faculty, including the results of research that has implications for instruction
