We've just held the first in what will become an annual series: a COmputer
Writing and Research Lab Colloquium, in which we alternated between
conference-style presentations (more or less formal papers on different
aspects of computer-based instruction and/or research) and hands-on
demonstrations. We spread this over a day and a half; we also served
food, as a way to lure people in...

There were three sessions: on pedagogical strategies for the networked
classroom, on hypertext for the classroom (both courseware and
student-authored texts), and on integrating internet phenomena
(newsgroups, Mosaic/WWW, MUDs and MOOs) into the curriculum.

The reviews were good; we'll be publishing selected parts of the
proceedings in Vol. 1, #1 of our on-line journal, CWRL, in late August.
