Subject: Computers & Writing 2003 and Computers in
On behalf of their organizers, I am pleased to invite you to these
conferences for writing with computers and new media throughout the curriculum.
COMPUTERS & WRITING
Discovering Digital Dimensions: Computers and Writing 2003 (3-D at Purdue
in 2003) will be hosted by Purdue s Department of English, the Professional
Writing Program, the Rhetoric and Composition Program, and the Writing Lab
from May 22 25, 2003, in West Lafayette, Indiana.
Keynote and Featured Speakers: Mark C. Taylor, Bob Stein, Victoria Vesna,
and Victor J. Vitanza
As in years past, the conference will provide diverse opportunities for
engagement on issues of central concern to teachers, scholars, and writers
in the emergent culture of the digital age. The theme 3-D at Purdue in 2003
stresses the importance of discovery in the many dimensions of learning,
teaching, and writing as digital networks proliferate and make possible new
forms of expression, suggest alternative rhetorics, and invite
(re)presentation of our disciplinary histories. Conference participants
will have opportunities to hear keynote addresses from well-known
intellectuals, attend poster and panel sessions, interact with vendors
specializing in communication technologies, and be entertained at special
multimedia (3-D) events. The conference again partners with the Graduate
Research Network and the CW 2003 Online Conference. Some participants may
have opportunities for earning course credit.
Special features include an onsite virtual caf, digital discovery zone,
open source workshop, 3-D hypnovista movie, pre-conference workshops, Wolf
Park excursion, and more. For more information and registration forms, see
http://www.cw2003.org. Full registration of $150 includes all meals and
special events. Registration for students and adjunct faculty is $100.

COMPUTERS IN WRITING-INTENSIVE CLASSROOMS
June 16-27, 2003
Michigan Technological University
To all interested in higher education and K-12 writing instruction,
composition, communication, new media, and pedagogies incorporating
technology, I would like to announce a suite of summer institutes:
These institutes are coordinated by
Dr. Cynthia Selfe, Michigan Technological University
Dr. Anne Frances Wysocki, Michigan Technological University
Dr. Richard Selfe, Michigan Technological University
Dr. Gail Hawisher, University of Illinois-Urbana-Champaign
Dr. Johndan Johnson-Eilola, Clarkson University
_Approaches to Integrating Computers into Writing Classrooms (CIWIC-AIC)_
In its eighteenth year, CIWIC-AIC provides a space for participants to
explore the thoughtful integration of technology in composition and other
classrooms by examining the value of such tools as electronic
conferencing, text and visual composition software, print and Web design,
digital video, and sound editing, as well as technology-enhanced
assignment design and lab management strategies.
_Integrating New Media into Writing Classrooms (CIWIC-NM)_
In its third year, CIWIC-NM participants learn graphics and authoring
software for composing multimedia texts. They also use those texts--as
well as student- and commercially produced multimedia--as grounds for
discussing and developing compositional and rhetorical approaches for
teaching both the interpretation and the development of new media texts in
_Individual Projects (CIWIC-IP)_
CIWIC-IP is an institute for past CIWIC participants who want to take on a
more focused project. Past participants have worked on designing
distance-education courses that incorporate email, the Internet, and
Instructional Television; designing a Web-based student publication realm
publication. CIWIC-IP participants receive one-on-one instruction and
support from a CIWIC staff member specializing in the participant's field
DATES AND FACILITIES
CIWIC-AIC, CIWIC-NM, and CIWIC-IP run concurrently for two weeks, June
17-28, 2003, consisting of 10 six-hour days with optional lunch and
All three institutes use a state-of-the-art computer facility, Michigan
Tech's Center for Computer-Assisted Language Instruction (CCLI). In
addition to attending regularly scheduled sessions, participants have
24-hour access to the lab for additional explorations and practice.
Cynthia Selfe, Anne Wysocki, Richard Selfe, and a team of knowledgeable
student consultants provide one-on-one instruction--on both Macintosh and
PC platforms--in developing and using applications suited for
participants' own classrooms and Writing/English programs. All
participants receive three semester-hours of graduate credit.
Participants need have no previous computer knowledge; individualized
instruction will be provided. At the same time, participants who do have
extensive experience with computers will find plenty of challenges and
room to explore within the framework of the workshop. Participants from
all educational levels are encouraged to attend.
Enrollment is limited. Apply early!
