2021 Event

“Hindsight is 2020” Professional Development and Resource Day

What a ride we’ve been on this past year! 2020 challenged us in ways we didn’t expect, and 2021 surely has a few surprises of its own. Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have all had to adapt and grow as writing center consultants, administrators, and professionals — often in isolation. The Board of the Mississippi Writing Center Association and the University of Mississippi Writing Centers invite you to take a break from that isolation and join us for a professional development and resource sharing day, Hindsight is 2020, on Friday, March 12, 2021.

What have we learned from this crazy year? What insights, strategies, tools, and resources can we share? How can we support one another as we navigate new contexts for writing center work?

Since we had to cancel our 2020 in person conference and cannot (at this time) safely hold our 2021 conference, we offer this alternate program as a way for us to connect as a community and learn alongside each other. This event will be held online through a combination of synchronous sessions for live participation and asynchronous resources/materials accessible for review at your convenience on our website. Hindsight is 2020 will include sessions and resources geared toward both writing center administrators and student-consultants.
