2019 TYCA Conference - National Council of Teachers of English

Starting the Conversation: Teaching, Scholarship, and Activism at Two-Year Colleges
The first National TYCA conference is an opportunity to talk “across country” with two-year college faculty who are facing challenges related to course load, state funding, dual credit, maintaining rigor with underserved student populations, and more. In a system that often fails our students, we’re working together to eliminate barriers and empower students within our communities.


50 breakout sessions (plus 5 Council on Basic Writing sessions), all-day poster sessions, opening session, luncheon, and evening activities.

The online program and PDF program are now available!
