"Future of Writing Centers" Symposium: Feb. 22-24

Friday Feb 22, 2013 | TBA

In honor of its 20-year anniversary, the Undergraduate Writing Center will host a celebration and symposium on the future of writing centers.

Topics include:

What aspects of our current practice should we pass on to the next generation of writing center practitioners? What would you like re-examine, re-define or re-imagine?

How will the digital revolution continue to shape writing center pedagogy and practice? What challenges will arise as education becomes an increasingly digitized activity? How does growing up in a digitized world affect the way students experience the act of writing? What will best enable us to continue to meet their needs and expectations?

For the past forty years, writing centers have been engaged in legitimizing themselves as professional services. What arguments for legitimacy best serve us in the current landscape of university education? What issues deserve our attention now?
