    Mixing Sources, Amplifying Voices: Crafting Writing in a Digital Age
    As the inputs continue to multiply, how can we help students find, evaluate, and synthesize information from a variety of sources? More importantly, how can we help them craft digital writing in effective ways, utilizing the information that they have found to develop multimedia texts? Bring your favorite device, because in this interactive keynote we will explore a variety of web-based tools and mobile applications to help students mix together a variety of sources and amplify their digital voices.

    With Literacy and Learning for All
    As students move from novice to expert in various fields of study, they must become familiar with specialized vocabulary, patterns of thinking, and specific uses of language. More than just integrating reading and writing strategies across the curriculum, as effective teachers we must invite students from diverse backgrounds to become fluent in what are now being labeled as "disciplinary literacies," the spaces where content knowledge, literacy skills, and critical thinking all connect. Bring your favorite device, because in this interactive keynote we will explore a variety of tools and ideas that can help our students learn how to read, write, and think like experts in our own classrooms and beyond.
    2:05 - 3:00 - Session 4 - Self-regulation and Reflection
    Can I Cite That?: Examining What Counts as Evidence in a Digital World
    In an era of fake news and alternative facts, it has become increasingly complicated to think about what "counts" as evidence in academic writing. Long gone are the days when writers could simply trust a ".org" or ".edu" site, or be told to simply dismiss Wikipedia as unreliable. Building on the Association of College and Research Libraries "Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education," we will examine the tensions –and possibilities – that arise when writers use different kinds of text (including images, videos, tweets, blog posts, and more) as evidence in academic argument. We will also explore the boundaries of copyright and fair use, exploring the intersections of these legal issues with the ethical issues of plagiarism and citation.

    Teaching Critical Thinking through Argument Writing
    Evaluating an author's argument and using source material to create and bolster one's own thesis is crucial for students to know in all of their coursework, no matter what the discipline. In the session, we will discover strategies to help move students from discovering initial sources to crafting their final draft, all the while scaffolding the process of argument through the lens of critical thinking.
