Two-year college writing centers are distinct for many reasons: institutional missions, student bodies, administrative expectations, faculty involvement, and funding priorities. This live, interactive, on-line conference will amplify our voices in the discussions about writing center work, without the fees or travel expenses of traditional conferences. Presenters are encouraged to focus on one of five areas:
- Addressing diverse student populations
- Facilitating successful tutoring sessions
- Assessment and research
- Incorporating technology
- Peer tutoring in the 2-year college
Two-year college writing center directors, peer and professional tutors, and the writers who visit 2-year college writing centers are encouraged to present. Single presenters, panels, and special-interest-group discussions are all welcome; an accompanying power point component is strongly encouraged and will be made available in an archive through the IWCA.
The conference will take place in Elluminate. The Elluminiate environment is an interactive webinar in which the speaker is visible to all participants via webcam, power point slides are visible to all participants, and live oral and written exchanges with the presenter are encouraged and possible.
This Talk Time is sponsored by the International Writing Centers Association.
