AU Samford Clocktower2018 International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference

Auburn University Hotel and Conference Center | June 4 – 6, 2018

Auburn University’s Office of University Writing is proud to announce the 2018 International Writing Across the Curriculum Conference from June 4-6, 2018. The conference theme, “Making Connections,” emphasizes how writing across the curriculum fosters connections within and across institutions and programs, between people and positions, and among ideas and practices.

To say that work in higher education too often happens in silos is to state the obvious. Recognizing that academic work is often isolated, we aim to continue IWAC’s long tradition of bringing different kinds of people together and of valuing the wide range of important work that happens at all levels and in all disciplines. We especially want to foster curiosity and conversation about how the values of disciplinary faculty connect to the values of writing specialists, about how academic courses connect to learning that happens in co-curricular programs, about how art is related to written texts, and about how K-12 teachers and university teachers can learn from one another. We aim to create a conference experience where people with differing expertise can connect, learn from each other, and carry that learning back to their classrooms, labs, faculty meetings, extension offices, and learning centers.
