Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau

Traverse City Convention & Visitors Bureau Well, my trip to the Grand Traverse Bay area was a success. Julie, Stephanie, and my boys had a good time exploring the town and area. I had a successful presentation and I found many of the presentations informative.

I had a full house for my lecture on plagiarism. The room was a laptop lab with wireless internet connections. There were only 25 seats so my session was full a few minutes before I started. My lecture went well and I felt I made some good points. I got excellent questions from the audience. They liked my "identify the plagiarized papers" assignment and all the groups nailed the stolen papers quickly. I got high evaluation marks with a few exceptions. (One attendee clearly did not read the program description as he was expecting content I had no intention of covering.)

I hope to attend this conference next year. It will also be in Traverse City in September 2004.
