UC ingot   College writing instructors and disciplinary writers from across the Midwest are invited to UC Clermont College June 8-10 for a national summer conference sponsored by the Conference on College Composition and Communication.

UC Clermont is one of just four institutions to host the organization’s 2017 regional summer conferences, and it is the first national conference of any discipline to take place on the college’s Batavia campus.

The conference theme of “Diverse Writers, Diverse Writing” focuses on bringing together ideas and experiences around writing in all its diverse forms — a critical topic for instructors who aim to develop engaging composition courses in which students create prose that effectively reaches many audiences — and still honors their linguistic varieties. The three-day conference will offer opportunities for participants to share their research in writing for digital and multimedia outlets, as well as their opportunities working with diverse students and across the curriculum.

“We welcome attendees who teach history, physics — any discipline," says Sharon Burns, associate professor of English. "We also welcome high school teachers. When you bring many people together from the field, and they take what they learn back into the classroom — it’s unimaginable the number of students who will truly benefit from this conference.”

Conference registration closes May 15. Learn more and register today at www.ucclermont.edu/2017_summer_conference/workshop_registration.html.
