NCIIA meetings are a great place to learn about assignments and activities that work for other people and could be adapted to other situations. However, many such nifty assignments (NAs) aren't presented at conferences or in formal publications. Thus, this panel session is an opportunity to share NAs with each other. The NA session at the 2011 NCIIA conference was popular and lively, and NA sessions have been popular at other education conferences for a decade. A great NA is easy to adopt and adapt, relevant in many settings, thought-provoking, and fun for students and teachers. For each NA, there will be a brief (~5 min) presentation and a few minutes for questions. Each NA will be summarized in a simple template and the collected templates will be available as handouts or downloads. If time permits, we will welcome spur-of-the-moment NAs from anyone attending the session and general discussion.http://nciia.org/network/conference/2011/nifty_assignments
