Conference Attendance Funding

Ed Lessor, Katie Hoffman, and Sarah Hart were awarded support from the STF/STA Professional Development Funds (which are supported by proceeds from sales of ISM and RRAW textbooks) to travel to College Composition and Communication in 2013.  Nancy Henke was awarded funds to travel to the 2013 Writing Program Administrators Conference.  Look for information about workshops and other events that these colleagues will facilitate to share new research with all composition instructors.

Beth Lechleitner: “Reporting Live from Atlanta”

Recently, Instructor in Upper-Division Composition Beth Lechleitner attended the 4C’s conference in Atlanta.  

“I thought that if I went to 4C’s, I could testify to the value of conferencing, in particular to the teaching faculty. And boy can I: this was a great experience.”

Reporting Live from Atlanta is her account of how she got there, why she went, and how it was.
