Congratulations!

Dr. Dona Warren has received the 2015 University Excellence in Teaching Award. Traditionally, many award-winners are nominated by the students, so the recognition is testimony to Professor Warren's effectiveness with our students. This award underscores the important and highly valued contributions Professor Warren has made to this campus.

Dr. Dona Warren has received a grant from the Office of Professional and Instructional Development to explore the potential of online argument mapping tools to facilitate the teaching of critical thinking at UW-Stevens Point. She will assemble and work with a team of faculty from across campus to draft supplementary online learning modules in argument mapping and to identify the challenges and opportunities associated with encouraging the use of these resources in the First Year Seminar and other courses within the General Education Program. Any students, faculty, or staff who might be interested in participating in this project are encourage to contact her at dwarren@uwsp.edu.
