Student Resource Center (SRC) Room 2000

Writing on the Edge is back and bigger and better than ever! Our fourth annual Writing on the Edge Conference will be held on Saturday, Oct. 20 here at College of DuPage. This year, we are opening up the conference to any faculty that use writing in their classes. Organized by adjunct faculty in the Liberal Arts Division, the conference aims to bring together faculty across disciplines and communities, and provide opportunities for information-sharing and networking. This year’s theme is “Composing Beyond Boundaries,” and sessions will focus on the work of adjuncts to foster communication across the curriculum and address topics in multimodal literacy, technology in the classroom, positive student engagement, and enhanced professional practice. We invite you to come experience the only writing conference put on by and for adjuncts and contingent faculty in the Midwest. We have it competitively priced at only $35 for a whole day of professional development.

Call For Proposals

We are looking for interactive proposals that show how you use writing in the classroom and beyond and the particular insights, advantages, and disadvantages of being an adjunct. Preference will be given to adjunct and contingent faculty, but full-time faculty can also submit proposals. Proposals are due by Friday, June 15.  View Proposal Guidelines.
