In just a few days (October 19 – 22), the Association for Business Communication is holding its annual conference in Montreal. If you are attending the conference, be sure to check out the list of presentations in the “Best Practices” and “Pedagogy” tracks.
I’ve highlighted a few below that sound interesting to me, but if you’re presenting at the conference and want to encourage people to attend your session, please post a comment. In case you’re curious, Kathy is presenting “Managing and Communicating with Millennials: Results 0f an Empirical Case Study,” and I am presenting “Creating Interactive Exercises for Online Business Writing Classes.” Please stop by our sessions. We would like to meet you.
