NYCAAPSE Conference


On Tuesday, May 15th, the English Department is collaborating with NYCAAPSE in a one-day conference that brings LIU teachers, graduate students, and high school professionals together for an extended conversation on Our Common Cores - Theory and Practice. In a series of hands-on workshops, we will be exploring our shared values as well as the distinct expectations our students face as they move from high school to college.

The conference begins at 9 AM with a keynote address from Dr. Peggy O’Neill, Loyola University Maryland. Workshops on topics ranging from Teaching and Technology to Writing Fiction start at 10 AM, and the conference ends with lunch from 1:30-2:30 PM. Registration is free, with a $21 charge for lunch. The English Department will underwrite lunch for graduate students and any faculty who need the subsidy.

Last year's conference was a rousing success, in large part because of a strong presence from our department, and we hope that you will join us to make this year's gathering fruitful for all concerned.
