Featuring Rebecca Hewett, California State University, Bakersfield, Instructor
"Turnitin has helped me teach communication at different levels...more levels than just an essay or research paper, but through multimedia experiences and real life interactions and being able to connect those assignments to employment, the community and other avenues of a student's life. To see Turnitin offer the ability to reinforce those communication skills is changing the way I teach."
To meet the challenges of today's digital age, Rebecca Hewett, English Professor at CSU Bakersfield, is engaging students with PowerPoint presentations, data visuals, public service announcement posters, and other hands-on assignments to empower and engage students. Join us for a session with Rebecca as she shares specific strategies on providing feedback that improves the communication abilities of her students through engaging assignments and targeted feedback.
