The 2014 IPCC conference will serve as a meeting ground for discussions about communication and learning — in the classroom, in the workplace, as a lifelong process.

Learning is tough work.
In the classroom, educators must juggle multiple tasks including: developing solid learning objectives; engaging and challenging learners with real-world projects; meeting and respecting the needs of diverse learners; and developing and testing innovative educational models. In the workplace, professional communicators need to keep pace with cultural expectations and technological change, as well as with current research and professional standards. This year’s conference invites technical communicators, engineers, educators, researchers, students, administrators, consultants, corporate trainers and more to meet and share their insights and experience.

We look forward to seeing you in 2014!
