Ed's Featured Session Description

Horizons: Colleges—two-year and four-year—as well as writing centers across the country have faced dramatic changes recently, to budgets, staffing, and mission. Consequently, we find ourselves in new conversations. Rather than dwell on the difficulties, we ask how we can create successful strategies to get us to a different and better horizon than the one we may have anticipated. We invite you to gather at Highline Community College to share your strategies, theories, pedagogical changes, technological adjustments, and whatever else you are creating as the landscape changes under our feet. We encourage multi-media presentations and interactive sessions, as well as traditional conference presentations. We welcome individual proposals, panel presentations, interactive workshops, and facilitated discussions. Full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, writing center staff, and peer tutors are encouraged to submit a proposal.

Note: We will have a “writing-center” thread of sessions running throughout the conference.
