CGC Summer Institute 2017
Works in Progress:
Supporting Graduate Communication Skills for Academic and Professional Contexts
June 7-10, 2017
Hosted by the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey,
The 2017 Summer Institute builds on the success of the 2016 institute at Yale University. The work of developing our field of graduate communication, our programs and courses, our theories and pedagogies is decidedly in progress. This year’s Summer Institute convenes in the stunning setting of northern California’s Monterey Bay to share our triumphs, discuss our challenges, and plan our future teaching, research, and program development. We invite colleagues who support graduate students’ written and oral communication in both academic and professional contexts to present, discuss, collaborate, and learn about works in progress.
