Next live chat: working with non-native speakers of English
We had a great live chat yesterday on PeerCentered. Our subject was "Why tutor?" and the conversation ranged from why folks chose to tutor, why they keep tutoring, and what they gain from their work. No one dared to try A/V, but the texting was still productive and interesting.
For our second live chat of the season we will be talking on the issue of working with non-native speakers of English at institutions where instruction takes place primarily in English. We will meet a 12:00pm Mountain Daylight Time (2p EDT, 1p CDT, 11a PDT, 7p GMT), once again, in the SLCC Student Writing Center's online space at https://www.slccswc.org/students/tinychat.php .
You don't have to be a peer writing tutor to participate in the discussion, but that's who PeerCentered is primarily for.
See you on October 4!
