Writing Center Workshops Added for Spring 2018
The Writing Center is adding workshops on a variety of writing and reading issues for Spring 2018. Held in Alden Classroom (McQuade 339) on Mondays from 12:30-1:45 and Tuesdays from 12:00-1:50, workshops will cover subjects such as reading academic texts, writing grad school essays, and source integration.
These workshops are designed to help students learn more about writing subjects based on different needs. Some, such as how to write a Graduate School Essay, may not be addressed in every discipline. Others, such as how to Navigate a Difficult text, are assumed to be part of every students’ skill set. And a few, like source integration and APA, MLA, and CMS coverage, are simply offered as refreshers for students who may need them. All students are encouraged to bring materials such as academic sources, paper and pen, and iPads or laptops to each session they attend in order to maximize their learning.
The complete list of workshop subjects, dates, and times is available here. Seating is limited to 20 students per session, and a sign-up and wait list is available on the Writing Center’s WCOnline appointment scheduling system. Questions about the workshops may be directed to Dr. Koch, Director of the Writing Center.
