New Literacies: Teaching Writing in the 21st Century
This year's conference will be at Prospector Square in beautiful Park City, Utah. We welcome submissions that focus on the theory and practice of teaching writing, especially in relation to teaching English at the two-year college. We're particularly interested in presentations that address the changing conditions of literacy in the 21st century, changes in the nature of the classroom, applications of technology to expand learning possibilities and challenges/successes particular to Western rural and urban educational environments. We're also encouraging graduate students who are interested in community college teaching to present at this year's conference and become involved in TYCA-West.
Proposals should include:
* Name, institution, and full address (including e-mail) of presenter(s).
* Title/type of presentation - single, panel, workshop (sessions are usually 50 minutes).
* One-page abstract, including relevance to conference theme and summary of main points.
Proposals due: August 31, 2006
