CONDUIT is the annual technical communication conference hosted by the STC Philadelphia Metro Chapter. CONDUIT attracts a diverse group of writing and tech comm professionals as well as those in technical writing and editing, instructional design and learning development, academia, UI/UX design and writing, and other professions. Discussion topics are not limited to tech comm and typically cover a broad range of subjects.
This year’s event will be a virtual un-conference this Saturday, April 10th, 2021 from 1:00 to 4:30 pm EDT. You can register for this half-day event for just $12.
An Online Un-Conference
These are not traditional, presentation-based, virtual meetings. Unconferences are flexible, participant-driven, virtual events that promote spontaneity and open dialog about topics of interest. You’ll have a chance to talk with leading experts in the field who will be moderating the conversations as well as with other professionals (or wannabe tech comm professionals) like yourself!
On the day of the un-conference, attendees will have two opportunities to vote for the topics they’d most like to hear in real-time. The top three topics will be assigned to the breakout rooms for each session. These tech comm topics will include both presentations and moderated discussion. Once the breakout rooms are assigned the topics chosen by the attendees, attendees can attend whichever room they choose–or hang out in the main “lobby”!
