CONFERENCE REGISTRATION INFORMATION,

Inkshed 19: Literacies, Technologies, Pedagogies

Working Conference of the
Canadian Association for the Study of Language and Learning

May 9-11, 2002
STANHOPE BY THE SEA
Prince Edward Island

Please join us for Inkshed 19, the annual Working Conference of the Canadian Association for the Study of Language and Learning. This year’s conference will feature a return to the scheduled reading time format initiated at the Inkshed 14 conference, along with presentations, interactive sessions, and poster sessions on issues ranging from email in the workplace and the classroom, to responding to student writing, to the interactions between genres and response.  And, of course, the traditional low-stakes talent night, and this year's innovation: lobster season opens. For a more extended description of what we hope to achieve at this conference, see the call for proposals, in the last Inkshed Newsletter.

One thing that's particularly important to note is that everyone who attends is invited -- nay, exhorted -- to bring materials for the "reading table."  This might be something you've been reading recently that you think other people interested in how people learn to use written language would like to read, or something you've written that you'd like to share with inkshedders (it might even be a draft you'd like to have comments on).  Bring a couple of copies.  Put them on the reading table.  There will be substantial time at this conference for people simply to read.  Bring your slippers. (There'll be time to talk about what we read, too.)

The draft conference program is available at  http://www.stthomasu.ca/inkshed/nlett302/ink19pgm.htm

Transportation

There are a variety of choices regarding transportation to Prince Edward Island. We suggest you begin looking into the best choice from your destination. Prices may vary considerably.  For those coming from Ontario and westwards West Jet goes as far as Moncton, N. B. Moncton is about a two-hour drive (across the Confederation Bridge) from Stanhope. If this is your preferred option, please let us know as soon as possible; we'll help with organizing Moncton.  If you are coming to Halifax and need a ride to P.E.I., we may be able to organize that too. There are some Haligonians driving to PEI and there are private mini-van shuttles available. If you are flying direct to Charlottetown, we need arrival times so we can organize a shuttle service. And, obviously, we need to know if you will need help getting off Prince Edward Island, too. You can provide this information now, or email Linda Meggs at meggs@pei.sympatico.ca as soon as you know what you need.

There are shuttles between Halifax and Charlottetown.  For further information from the PEI tourism site, click here:

This includes links to PEI Express Shuttle, NS-PEI Go Van Shuttle, Square One Shuttle (which also goes from Moncton), Advance Shuttle, and Maritime Shuttle (no Web sites, but there are phone contact numbers).

SMT runs buses from Moncton to Charlottetown.
