Writing Center Resources For Faculty
Classroom/Writing Center Visits
A member of our staff would be happy to stop by your classroom for a quick introduction to the Writing Center and what we can do for students. Alternatively, we’d love for your class to come visit us in Tutt Library, so students can see where we are located. A basic introduction should take 5-10 minutes. To schedule a class visit, please contact Chris Schacht at firstname.lastname@example.org
Writing Center staff lead multiple student workshops every block, covering topics from reading skills, brainstorming, and drafting, all the way to leading peer review sessions. These workshops are tailored specifically to the course, and so require communication with faculty and time for preparation. To schedule a workshop, please contact Chris Schacht at email@example.com
Assignment Design and Course Pacing
As course instructors, we understand the difficulty in creating writing assignments. An assignment must set clear expectations for students, while also challenging them to advance their rhetorical and critical thinking skills. We offer strategies for writing assignments that include scaffolding, rubric design, and pacing the assignment within the block so that students have opportunities to engage in the writing process. To discuss assignments and syllabi, please contact Kat Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org
Besides assignments, staff are available for consultations on other faculty/staff writing, including but not limited to article drafts, book chapters, and grants. Similarly, since our staff has experience with publishing and grant writing, we can offer help with addressing feedback from editors and grant reviewers. To find out more or schedule a consultation, please contact Kat Bell email@example.com or Chris Schacht firstname.lastname@example.org
FYE Writing Fellows
We are currently piloting our FYE Writing Fellows, dedicated peer consultants who are able to provide 20 hours of writing support per block (40 hours over two blocks). The Writing Fellows are assigned to just one course, working with the professor(s) to facilitate workshops and one-to-one consultations with students. For more on Writing Fellows, please contact Kat Bell at email@example.com
