Writing as a Way of Being HumanAssembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning2017 Summer Conference YMCA of the Rockies, Estes Park, COJune 22-25, 2017 Inspired by keynote speaker Robert Yagelski’s Writing as a Way of Being, the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning (AEPL)’s summer 2017 conference will bring together teachers, writers, and scholars from a variety of institutions, K-PhD, to investigate and enact what Yagelski calls the “potentially transformative inquiry into self and world that writing can be.” The human element has never been more important for our teaching and writing practices. As a result of defunding, perpetual assessment, and other ideological and social pressures, our institutions are in crisis. Yagelski views these problems as a result of the artificial separations of self/world and mind/body in everyday experience. The divides widen when we conceive of writing and writing instruction as means to an end rather than as a reflective and generative practice we might share together. Joining together in intentional acts of writing can awaken us to our interconnectedness, and to ways in which—as individuals and as a writing community—we might address the social and environmental challenges of our present and future world. The Assembly invites proposals for 75-minute workshops (preferred) or 20-minute presentations that address the conference topic or related topics addressing expanded perspectives on learning. Workshops should consist of hands-on learning activities participants might adapt and use in their teaching and/or research. Proposals may focus on one or more of the specific themes below from pedagogical, historical, theoretical and/or personal perspectives. Collaborative and creative approaches are encouraged.
