Welcome to the 2022 Conference Site!
Come learn about the long history of writing centers with Dr. Leigh Ryan, former director of the University of Maryland Writing Center (1982-2016), co-author of the Bedford Guide for Writing Tutors, and longtime executive in several professional organizations (IWCA, NCPTW, MAWCA)! Offer your ideas for research related to the history of writing centers and receive invaluable feedback.
From “What is a writing center?” to “What’s new in the writing center?”:
Our Past, Present, and Future
We will look briefly at the history of writing centers, then examine where we are now, and finally consider where we are or might be headed. How will we function within our tutors’ academic lives, as part of an academic community, and as part of an increasingly professional field of national and international writing centers?
