PeerCentered is a space for peer writing tutors/consultants or anyone interested in collaborative learning in writing centers to blog with their colleagues from around the world. Bloggers here will share their ideas, experiences, or insight.
The Winter 2012 Issue of Academic Exchange Quarterly is now accepting submissions for its special section on Writing Center Theory and Practice. Articles may explore issues of theory, practice, and experience in writing center work, including qualitative and empirical studies, discussions of pedagogy, and analyses of theory in three overlapping areas of inquiry. Articles may also consider the following: How writing center professionals cope with change and the eventuality of needing to expand their efforts in response to new economic and demographic challenges. Furthermore, as we move towards increasingly viral and technologically dependent learning communities, how can these efforts help meet the evolving demands of our students?
In addition to Writing Center Directors and other Administrators, we welcome submissions from professional staff, faculty tutors, and graduate students who work in the Writing Center. Manuscript length should be between 2,000 and 3,000 words. Please identify your submission with the keyword "Center-2."
Submissions are accepted any time until the end of August; however, early submissions are encouraged as they offer the following incentives:
- longer time for revision
- opportunity to be considered for Editor's Choice
- eligibility to have article's abstract and/or full text posted on AEQ's main webpage
