Carmen Werder (TLA/Western Libraries) and two students from the Teaching-Learning Learning Academy (TLA, Dmitri Simuel and Daniel Espinoza-Gonzalez, co-presented on "Raising Student Voices: Developing Democratic Engagement Through Dialogue About Teaching and Learning" at the AAC&U annual meeting in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 27.  With support from the VPUE's office, Werder and Matt Miller also participated in the annual conference as co-chairs of the Committee on Undergraduate Education (CUE).  Also featured at the conference was a new report titled "A Crucible Moment: College Learning and Democracy's Future," (commissioned by the US Department of Education and written by a National Task Force on Civic Learning & Democratic Engagement), which highlighted what the report terms "a ground-breaking book Citizen Across the Curriculum," which includes a chapter authored by Werder.
