  • TDI Featured in Peer Review and Discussion Guide Available

    The latest issue of Peer Review (quarterly magazine published by AAC&U) focuses on student political engagement. TDI members authored some of the articles, including one by TDI’s Co-Director, Nancy Thomas.

    The Spring/Summer 2008 issue of Peer Review examines how the academy engages students in their learning today to help them grow as engaged citizens for tomorrow. It focuses on democratic civic engagement rather than service and in what some call civic agency. The editors of Peer Review were kind enough to allow us to share three of the feature articles which you can download here.

    Several TDI members wrote articles for the issue and we encourage you to make use of the discussion guide  we created to accompany this issue.
