2017 National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing

The Hofstra Cultural Center presents National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing: Reaching Out: Revising Writing Center Spaces and Identities. The National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing (NCPTW) promotes the teaching of writing through collaborative learning. NCPTW professionals are leaders in collaborative approaches, responding to the challenges of creating and operating writing centers, developing innovative peer tutoring programs, and promoting the work of their peer tutors. The NCPTW offers peer tutors the opportunity to contribute in professional and scholarly ways to the larger writing center community. NCPTW’s invitation to focus on "reaching out" considers the various ways writing centers connect with stakeholders on college campuses, in cyberspace, and through research. The extended theme of "Revising Writing Center Spaces and Identities" further seeks to generate inquiry, conversation, and debate about defining the spaces in which writing centers practice. The keynote speakers for this conference will be Lauren Fitzgerald and Melissa Ianetta, authors of The Oxford Guide for Writing Tutors: Practice and Research.


Dates: Thursday - Sunday, October 12-15
