2. MW SIG Forum Collaboration in Materials Writing

Sunday, November 3, 11:45 AM – 1:15 PM; Room 1104

As materials creators, much of our work is collaborative in nature. Collaboration enriches our work and is often necessary in order to turn our ideas into concrete materials. However, it can be difficult for collaborators to find a common vision, meld different skill sets and working styles, and come to an agreement on various details. In this year's forum, panelists with backgrounds in publishing, writing, and research shared their experiences and gave valuable advice.

2. MW SIG Forum Diversity and Inclusion in Teaching Materials

Saturday, November 24, 5:50 PM – 7:20 PM; Room 904

Diversity is becoming an increasingly important issue in today's society. It is therefore in our students' best interests for us to include a wider range of voices in our teaching materials. In this interactive forum hosted by the Materials Writers SIG, a panel of writers shared how they incorporate diverse voices and related topics into the teaching materials that they create. Both theoretical approaches and practical considerations were discussed.
