2013 WAI Conference Details:

The fifth annual Writing Across Institutions conference was held April 5, 9 a.m.-6 p.m., in the Price Lake Room of the Plemmons Student Center on Appalachian's campus.  Our keynote speaker was Dr. Kim Gunter, Assistant Chair of the Composition Program at Appalachian, who led us in a workshop on teaching developmental writing.  We had great discussions concerning developmental courses and the new curriculum changes. 

At the 2013 conference, Lisa Redman provided information about a panel she conducted for WAC with business and professional leaders about writing in the workplace.  Please click here to access the results of her research.
