The Communication Symposium at CMU-Department of English - Carnegie Mellon University

Carnegie Mellon University Communication Symposium

The Communication Symposium was an annual meeting of faculty and staff from both the Pittsburgh and Qatar campuses of Carnegie Mellon University. The overall goal of the symposium was to build one intellectual community that aims toward developing effective approaches for assisting students to develop the professional and technical English communication skills that they will need to function effectively in the emerging global knowledge economy.

The 2012 symposium titled, "Developing a Transnational Education: Teaching across Cultures and Languages" featured individual talks, thematically-grouped papers, and roundtable discussion. For more information, please see the program [.pdf].
