The University of Florida’s Writing Program invites proposals for our annual Conference on Pedagogy, Practice and Philosophy. Writing occurs beyond the classroom or institutional formats, yet ‘schooling’ still defines much of how we write. Students and instructors participate in public discourse through diverse media literacies, developing writing practices that compose our relationships with individuals, education, institutions, and events. Yet, institutionalized learning often prioritizes specific formats and page-based pedagogy.

Education is central to human advancement. Those engaged in shaping and delivering a meaningful education face a multiplicity of challenges not least in regards to pedagogy and andragogy, but also due to the demand on resources at every level. The importance of higher education to a country's future in a global economy has become increasingly a topic of debate and discussion. As a consequence, those in leadership roles in higher education (HE) are faced with often conflicting demands from various stakeholders. The pressures for those in management roles in higher education are considerable and this is equally true of those who work assiduously to ensure that education is relevant and fit for purpose.
