Take a Tour of TYCA

Nov 16, 2011   //   by rrodrigo   //   Blog, News  //  No Comments

TYCA members, are you ready to take the Tour?!

The Tour of TYCA features highlights from each of the 2011 regional conferences—PowerPoints, videos, handouts, etc. from sessions that were particularly well-received and are broadly applicable. Pick up strategies for teaching online or using Jing as a commenting tool. Learn more implementing the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing. Hear what students have to say about teacher comments. Get some fresh ideas for classroom activities and assignments. Address issues that face two-year college instructors nationwide, such as basic writing and accelerated learning programs, college completion initiatives, or dual credit/concurrent enrollment.

The Tour of TYCA kicks off on National TYCA’s official “birthday”; TYCA turns 15 years old on November 25, 2011, and the first event is a TYCA history lesson. In the two weeks following, the Tour will showcase sessions from one of our seven regions each day. (Schedule of “release” dates.) It will conclude with the voices of TYCA leaders discussing TYCA’s past, present, and future. Throughout the Tour, view session highlights and ask questions of the presenters or engage in discussion with fellow colleagues online. Each featured session will be available on the National TYCA Connected Community and will remain on the site in case you miss a day of the Tour or want to revisit a presentation or supporting materials at a later date.

Join us for this inaugural event! Celebrate the work of your two-year college colleagues! Learn from and share with other two-year college English teachers across the nation. The Tour begins November 25
