Register by May 15 for national writing conference at UC Clermont
Thursday, April 20, 2017 10:21 AM
College writing instructors and disciplinary writers from across the Midwest are invited to UC Clermont College June 8-10 for a national conference sponsored by the Conference on College Composition and Communication.
UC Clermont is one of just four institutions to host the organization’s 2017 regional summer conferences, and it is the first national conference of any discipline to take place on the college’s Batavia campus.
The conference theme of “Diverse Writers, Diverse Writing” focuses on bringing together ideas and experiences around writing in all its diverse forms — a critical topic for instructors who aim to develop engaging composition courses in which students create prose that effectively reaches many audiences and still honors their linguistic varieties. The three-day conference will also offer opportunities for participants to share their research in writing for digital and multimedia outlets and in working with diverse students and across the curriculum.
“We welcome attendees who teach history, physics — any discipline. We also welcome high school teachers,” UC associate professor of English Sharon Burns said. “When you bring many people together from the field, and they take what they learn back into the classroom — it’s unimaginable the number of students who will truly benefit from this conference.”
Conference registration closes May 15. Learn more and register at www.ucclermont.edu/2017_summer_conference/workshop_registration.html.
