The First-Ever Virtual TYCA-SW Conference 2021

Conference Co-Chairs Toni McMillen and Sarah Fish were pleased to coordinate the first-ever virtual TYCA-SW Conference, bringing us together, though we stayed physically apart. You can check out the sessions and conversations we had this year within our conference program.

The First-Ever Travel Awards Announced

The TYCA-SW Scholarship Committee is happy to announce the inaugural travel award recipients for the 2021 Virtual Conference. They have received this honor based on the merits of their proped presentations:

  • Linda Kapocsi, Collin College
  • Rosalinda Valenzuela, Collin College
  • Jessica Goodman, Oklahoma City Community College

The First-Ever Assignment Innovation Track

Another first this year was our inclusion of an Assignment Innovation Track, a way to asynchronously share unique approaches to assignments and offer another way to present at the conference.

Check out the cool work shared below:

Brianne Sardoni, Social Media and Big News: Fact or Opinion? Low Stakes Assignments for Understanding Credible Sources

Kimberly George, Creating Change Portfolio End-of-Semester Project

The conference recognizes these contributions on the same level as a presentation.
