Conferences Week

Leave a comment

April 4, 2013 by Jackie Hoermann

Next week is dedicated to conferences. You all know too well why I consider conferences important. Meeting in a one-to-one scenario allows me to give more personal attention to you. As with peer conferencing, working in smaller communicative contexts is a significant part of your development as writers. That’s why we do it. It does make a difference, especially when you come prepared and ready to ask lots of questions about your writing process.

Note: If you need to check your conference time, click here. If you’re unsure where my office is, Landscape Architecture 001, click here or see the image to the right.

Once more, it’s critical that you come to conferences prepared. Bring some sort of detailed outline or proposal for how you will go about creating and organizing your mediated argument. I have no set expectations for this assignment, it can be as abstract or concrete as you like, and it does not have to be posted to your e-portfolio blog (but it certainly can be, if you like). For some “invention templates” may jump-start your writing process, and if so, see our invention templates on the Resources page.

And remember, bring lots of questions.
