Writing Centers in the 2-Year College: A Free Online Talk-Time Conference [Updated]

[Updated 1/24/2012]

The program for the online talk-time conference Writing Centers in the 2-Year College is set!  For more information about conference attendance, please visit http://bit.ly/wbIto3 .  The information isn’t up yet, but should be shortly.  I’ll be sure to update you all when it is up.  It is going to be an excellent conference!  I am particularly pleased by the number of sessions being lead by community college peer tutors.   It will be an excellent way to kick of International Writing Centers Week 2012 (Feb 12-18).

Here is the unedited schedule [with links to the online conference rooms] to whet your appetites:
