#4C17 – Panels on Feedback and Revision

The College Conference on Composition and Communication will meet in Portland, Oregon, from March 15-18.

We’ve compiled the sessions we’re most excited about. Some sessions relate to Eli Review directly, where presenters will share teaching or research stories, but we’ve also searched the online program for all of the sessions we could related to feedback and revision. Hope to see you there!

Note: the convention schedule is currently only available in PDF files or in the mobile app, but we will update this page with links to each session if/when a web version becomes available.
