Hoeft Next Th@U Speaker


The next Thursdays @ the U lecture series presentation, scheduled for November 7, will feature Mary Hoeft speaking on “Why Don’t University Students Read?”  This presentation will be held from 12:30 – 1:20 p.m. in the UW-BC Blue Hills Lecture Hall in Rice Lake.             

All series presentations, which are open to the public free of charge, will be held every Thursday at the University of Wisconsin-Barron County in Rice Lake.                 

Mary Hoeft, UW-BC Professor of Communication and Theatre Arts, will present findings from her five year research study which investigated whether or not students completed reading assignments and what their reasons were for complying or failing to comply.  An article revealing her findings was recently published in the July issue of the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

The next Thursdays @ the U on November 14 will feature Barron County Circuit Court Judge Michael Bitney speaking on “Effective Sentencing: Evidence-based Practices.”

The Thursdays @ the U Lecture Series is sponsored by the UW-Barron County Foundation.  For more information, contact the campus at 715-234-8176.
