Tennessee English Conference at Vol State

Vol State hosted the Two-Year College English Association of Tennessee (TYCAT) conference on November 11 and 12.  English professors from 10 of the 13 TBR community colleges were in attendance. 

This annual conference allows community college English professors across the state to share ideas, concerns, and pedagogical approaches with their colleagues.  This year’s conference was conducted in the style of “TED Talks” and made great use of the Performing Arts Studio in the new Steinhauer-Rogan-Black Humanities Building.  Ten of the 37 presenters were Vol State English Faculty, and they include: Emily Andrews, Cindy Chanin, Leslie LaChance, Betty Mandeville, Laura McClister, Ami Price, Catherine Randall, Cynthia Wyatt, Kevin Yeargin, and April Young. 

Vol State students from the Sigma Kappa Delta English Honor Society were also on hand to assist with registration and to listen in on some of the presentations.
