University Writing Program Schedules Conference
To address the complex issue of students' differing writing abilities, UNC Charlotte's University Writing Program will host writing instructors from throughout the region at its inaugural one-day regional writing conference on Friday, September 12. The event will be held at UNC Charlotte Center City, 320 E. 9th Street, Charlotte.
"Bridging Inquiries: Research, Process, and Literacy from High School to Higher Ed" will offer panels and round-table discussions on topics such as commonalities in curricula, partnerships across institutions, academic literacies, inquiry-guided learning and teaching, academic transferability, and best practices in the teaching of writing. Presenters will include educators and scholars from Charlotte-area K-12 schools, colleges, and universities. Publisher representatives will offer writing resources for purchase, and lunch will provide a space for exchange and discussion.
