Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The literature review is a common writing assignment across the curriculum in higher education.
Disciplinary discourse, however, determines how a literature review is approached. By extending
the Burkean Parlor metaphor, this session will demonstrate how instructors across the disciplines
can guide students through the process of writing a literature review.
