Presenters’ Collective Network (PCN)

Session #2 –

(Teaching Fellows Only )

TC’s interested in attending, please RSVP to Stanley Pesick- stanley.pesick@gmail.com

UC Berkeley, 3635 Tolman Hall 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

For long-time consultants and presenters, we want to the PCN to be a place for you to try out a new presentation, or refine one you’ve already developed. For TCs who have not yet had a chance to present, we’d like the PCN to be an opportunity for you to further develop ideas and presentations put forth at your summer institute. For all of us, the collegial support at the center of the PCN is intended to help us work confidently with colleagues as we support continued growth as teachers of writing and teachers of content such as history and science.
