PeerCentered Meet the Author Discussions

PeerCentered is now sponsoring a series of discussion groups with various authors of recent (well mostly recent) writing-center-related texts. The discussions listed below will be held in PeerCentered’s TinyChat space. TinyChat allows audio and video but you can also participate via text chat.

We hope that attendees will have read the books and come prepare with questions to ask or topics to discuss. A moderator will coordinate the discussion and kick us off with some questions, but the driving force behind the discussion will be you.

The purpose of PeerCentered is to promote and foster peer tutoring, so please invite any peer tutors you know to attend.
