Save these dates and come hungry:

The EWCA Summer Institute 2023 is the EWCA’s second ever summer institute. Deemed a massive success by all who attended the first EWCA SI in Viadrina, the second SI in the American University of Armenia in Yerevan promises to be just as good if not even better.

The SI traditionally is a time for folks to get away from day-to-day responsibilities and to gather as a cohort, and while the extent to which you get away from mundane matters is up to you, this yearโ€™s cohort will enjoy the opportunity to virtually connect with writing center professionals across the globe. Just like in years past, participants can count on the experience to include a generous mix of:

  • Workshops
  • Independent project time
  • One-on-one and small group mentoring
  • Connecting with cohort members
  • Special interest groups
  • Other engaging activities

The EWCA SI is for anyone who is:

  • Interested in or already providing writing support in learning centres, language centres, academic support centers, or writing centers 
  • Starting up a new writing centre or interested in doing so
  • New to directing or working as professional staff a writing center
  • Looking for new direction for their writing center
  • Planning or expanding a writing center career
  • Interested in learning and sharing with writing center and writing support colleagues
  • Ready for more sustained discussions about writing support and/or writing centers than conferences offer

Please, keep the dates free. Come to Yerevan in May, 2023. There’ll be lots of interesting talk and activities. Come hungry and bring your dancing shoes (just in case). ๐Ÿ™‚
