Posted on: Jul 16, 2013

On September 20, 2013, Concordia's English Department will be hosting the Ninth Campus Alberta Writing Studies Colloquium.  Here is the Call for Papers, in case you teach writing or composition and would like to present a paper:

Please consider sending a proposal for our one day writing colloquium to be held this September.  Papers on any aspect of teaching writing are welcome, but we will have a special focus on writing and technology.  Sample topics might include using alternate forms of instruction (e.g., video); marking essays electronically; dealing with online plagiarism; and teaching writing for blogs, twitter, and other forms of online communication.  This list is not meant to be exhaustive and all proposals are welcome.  Please send a brief abstract (100-200 words) to conrad.vandyk@concordia.ab.ca.  Deadline: July 31st.  The program will be out early in June.
