English Department professor Lilia Savova presented at the 2014 Three Rivers TESOL Conference in Pittsburgh on October 25. Her topic was “Transforming Writing Drafts from Products to Processes with NoodleTools.”
Her presentation illustrated how the use of NoodleTools, an online research-writing platform, could redefine the notion of “draft” and of “writing research” itself by allowing students and their teachers to monitor the writing process as it evolves, not as captured by a limited number of drafts.
Savova has been using NoodleTools in her research writing classes for the past two semesters and has found this program helpful in overcoming major student difficulties (e.g., analysis, synthesis, coding, focus, and even plagiarism).
