IWCA Forum: Peer Tutor => What do we call ourselves: the poll!
I have posted a poll in the IWCA forums: IWCA Forum: Peer Tutor => What do we call ourselves: the poll! It is a part of an earlier discussion that kind of petered out about the titles used for writing center workers. Please take a moment and vote! If you don't have an account on the forum, you can register for one by clicking on the "Register" link (next to the rocket icon in the top-right of the page.) Don't forget to state your institutional affiliation when you request and account. (That's how the IWCA Forum keeps out spam accounts.)
I assume the second one is to address a common fear of writing center directors that requiring all students to go to the center will cause a massive overload. I've never seen that really happen, however, and studies show that requiring students to go to the WC does have efficacy.ReplyDelete
Hilarious! Can you imagine setting appointments as far out as the next semester? What a hoot. I think you are absolutely correct--setting the expectation is crucial. I never skip the agenda setting up front when first meeting with a writer. It's helped me--and the writer--in many ways. Thanks for posting this video. I needed a good chuckle.ReplyDelete
