Attend two conferences in one trip! Consider participating in the meeting of the College Literacy and Learning (CLL) Special Interest Group (SIG) of the International Literacy Association (ILA) which will be held from 2 pm-5 pm on Sunday, March 29, 2020 in New River A (8th floor of the Riverside Hotel). It is the fifth year that the CLL group meets right before the TASS conference, so please take advantage of this professional development opportunity to attend and propose for two conferences.

Conference information, including the proposal submission process, can be found at The final proposal review deadline is December 15, 2019.

There will be presentations on issues and topics of post-secondary literacy and learning. This year’s conference is being themed around the idea of change. As educators, we experience change in a number of ways, seemingly constantly.  Students change. Administrative policies change. Programming and courses change. National and state policies change. Your role as an instructor might change. How your students engage in learning might change. In the face of sweeping changes in higher education, we have devoted this year’s conference theme to change. We invite proposals that relate to this theme of change in some way (feel free to be creative!), as long as it ties into college literacy and learning.
