Bruce Maylath, professor of English, delivered the paper, “Gateway to a Multilingual World: Managing Complexity in Multilateral International Collaboration” at the Conference on College Composition and Communication in St. Louis, March 21-24. The paper highlighted the cross-cultural virtual teams that match students in NDSU’s English 455/655 International Technical Writing course with students in Belgium, Denmark, Finland and France. The collaboration was highlighted in the Jan. 13, 2011, issue of It’s Happening at State.
Joining colleagues from several universities around the world, Maylath also helped lead a one-day workshop at the conference. The workshop was titled “Rhetoric and Composition Pedagogy and Scholarship in the Context of Globalization: Emerging Globally Networked Learning Environments as New Gateways for Theory, Research and Pedagogy.”
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
