Two-Year College Association - Northeast CONFERENCE
TYCA-NE 2013 CALL FOR PROPOSALS
October 3-5, 2013
Hyatt Morristown / Morristown, NJ
Program by Bergen Community College
TYCA-NE of the National Council of Teachers of English is currently seeking presentation proposals for its October 2013 Conference in Morristown, NJ. Presentations should focus on some aspect of the TYCA purpose: “the intellectual and pedagogical growth of English teachers and administrators in the two-year college throughout the northeast region.” Our theme for this year’s conference is:
R/evolutions: Addressing Pedagogical and Institutional Change in Higher Education
The TYCA-NE 2013 Conference asks us to define what changes are taking place, to anticipate future changes and to consider collaborative ways to implement changes, not only in our local institutions, but also in our communities.
Join us in New Jersey this year, at the center of our TYCA region. Morristown is known as the seat of the Revolutionary War, a tactical setting chosen by General George Washington as he led his Continental Army to encamp during the harsh winters. For two pivotal winters, the area served the Patriots who helped change America. Today, Washington Headquarters is maintained and preserved for its critical military history.
What kind of changes are you seeing at your institutions, can you see more changes evolving, and how are you addressing them? Proposals may address the following topics:
Readiness, Remediation and Redesign
Serving more students with fewer resources
We are interested in presentation topics that include revolutions in pedagogical thinking, planning and collaboration.
20 minute talk, discussion, or workshop followed by questions and answers;
200-250 word abstract elaborating on both the topic and format of the presentation;
TYCA Northeast hopes to foster creativity, collaboration and innovation. While traditional proposals will be accepted, non-traditional presentations are greatly encouraged and may receive priority consideration.
Proposals should be submitted by June 17, 2013. Presenters will be notified of proposal acceptance by June 30, 2013 and must register for the conference by August 31, 2013. Full submission instructions can be found on the conference website at www.tycanortheast.org/. The registration deadline for the conference is September 10, 2013.
Conference Registration Deadline: September 10, 2013
