The aim of the INTO OSU Professional Discussion Group is to give instructors a place to share and discuss research and other topics connected with our field. To that end, the discussion group meets in person each term. However, some instructors are not available to meet during that time, so this online space is a way to make the discussion topics and shared articles accessible to all instructors. In this online context, instructors have the opportunity to continue the discussion after the in-person meeting has ended.

Have a suggestion for a topic or article to share or discuss? Email Elisabeth:
