Pace University Writing Center Conference

2nd Annual Pace University Writing Center Conference
Sunday, November 18
10 a.m. – 4 p.m. 

Please read the announcement below from Pace University. Presentation titles and brief descriptions are due November 1. This sounds like a wonderfully welcoming conference if anyone is looking for experience presenting. This is not just a conference for professionals and graduate students. Undergraduate presenters are welcome, too!

Dear friends,

It is our pleasure to once again invite you to share your scholarship, practices, and ideas at Pace University. Last year, Pace Writing Center NYC hosted students, administrators, and professors from 17 metro area colleges. Participants presented on a variety of topics pertaining to writing center theory and practice.

Since the event was well attended and received an enthusiastic feedback, we are happy to provide the space and time for another set of conversations.

We are thus reaching out to the writing center community to solicit papers, presentations, round-table discussions, and panel proposals for this year’s ‘Fall Conversations at Pace University.’

This free event will take place on Sunday, November 18th  between 10am and 4pm.

As in the past year, the conference will not attempt to address a designated topic but will rather serve as a space for participants to discuss and exchange pertinent ideas on several topics in small settings.

To that extent, here are some identified panel/roundtable presentation ideas, and we welcome additional presentations and topics:

–       Partnerships between college and high school writing centers

–       Students=92 perceptions and reaction to the tutoring process

–       Information systems/computer databases

–       Undergraduate publications and presentations

–       Non-native speakers as tutors

–       Tutoring students in classes other than English

–       Collaborations with first-year writing programs

–       Advertising/promotional ideas

–       Blogs, podcasts, and videos

All writing center stakeholders (including but not limited to tutors, directors, and clients) are encouraged to participate.  We particularly welcome presentations by undergraduate tutors and writing center users. Please submit a presentation title and a brief description of your presentation to by November 1, 2012.

If you wish to attend but are not planning on presenting, please RSVP by November 12 via email or phone to Agie Markiewicz at amarkiewicz@pace.eduand at (212)346-1085.
