Composition Conference


From October 18-20, the Composition Program’s body of over one hundred teachers gathered at the annual Composition Conference, titled “Operating Instructions.” Assistant Directors Rachel Bash and Mary Ganster crafted session topics focused on practical pedagogical methodology, resulting in rich, engaging sessions on working with non-native English speakers, designing syllabi, negotiating grades, and finding dynamic ways to teach program pedagogy. Graduate students from an array of departments, adjunct instructors, university staff, and administrators all contributed teaching ideas, fielded questions, and added to the growing body of resources our program offers the university.
