“What are the implications of the increasing importance of writing for employees, employers, students, trainers, and educators?
Please join us on April 11, 2014for Alberta Writes 3, a full day of intentional conversation, to talk, debate, and write about the role of writing in students’ transition from academic study to full-time employment.”
Alberta Writes 3 is the third in a series of one-day symposium (conversations) about writing. The first two symposiums, hosted by the University of Alberta and the University of Lethbridge, explored the gaps, barriers and supports students face as they transition from writing in high school to writing in post-secondary contexts.
Alberta Writes 3 will focus on the transition from post-secondary to work. Adults preparing for the workforce or transitioning into the workforce with new roles or challenges need to develop the writing strategies and skills necessary to write across a range of modalities (social media, email), genres (reports, letters) and contexts (home, work and community).
The Alberta Writes 3 planning committee, representing Bow Valley College, the University of Lethbridge and the University of Albert, is inviting participation from post-secondary, industry, workforce and government.
There is no cost associated with this event, however there are a limited number of seats and registration is required.
