Some of the topics that will be discussed include: grouping strategies, peer collaboration, provision of feedback, placement issues, and evaluation of program outcomes.All student presenters will be eligible for consideration for a most promising scholar award.Abstract Submission: Authors are asked to submit their anonymous abstracts via the Easy Abstracts submission site: [://].
