To start off our conference, we will have Jeffrey Jarman speaking. Dr. Jarman hails from our very own Wichita State University. His primary research interests are analyses of political deliberations within the public sphere, and debate pedagogy. Since 1999, he has authored the annual overview of the new high school debate topic used by thousands of high school debaters around the nation. His talk, "Is it possible to win a debate" will also include a group discussion. This is a talk is definitely worth getting up early to catch!
