IWCA Collaborative @ CCCC 2020

The 2020 IWCA Collaborative will be held in Milwaukee, WI, on Wednesday, March 25th at the Norman H. Ott Memorial Writing Center, Marquette University. We look forward to launching your CCCCs experience or to offering you a stand-alone experience devoted to contact zones in writing center work.

Join us on Wednesday, March 25 from 9 AM to 5 PM for the IWCA Collaborative @ CCCC 2020, which will be held in the Norman H. Ott Memorial Writing Center, Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI, to explore “Contact Zones in Writing Center Work.”

There’s no better way to kick-off your CCCC adventure! We will begin the day with plenary sessions and end it with a cocktail hour, so you can meet other writing center administrators and tutors for professional and informal conversations. Across the day, you will choose from among concurrent sessions, all of which will have you actively engaged with other scholars.

Why do writing center scholars go to professional conferences? To share the findings of our scholarly work, sure. Many of us also attend for the chance to engage with peers from other institutions–to learn, to problem-solve, and to plan for the future in ways we cannot do alone. The IWCA Collaborative at CCCC offers the writing center community an opportunity to spend a full day working together–not to share what we’ve already done, but to help each other with what we still need to do.
