IN-CLASS WORKSHOPS

For the Fall 2021-2022 academic year, all workshops will be conducted virtually via Microsoft Teams.

 

We offer a number of basic and customized learner-focused workshops that are designed to compliment faculty writing instruction. Our workshops help students develop a variety of composition and literacy skills needed to successfully complete writing assignments, as well as learn to use Writing Center services. Most workshops take 45-60 minutes and contain 3 content areas: instruction, practice, and reflection/review.

We've found that workshops are most successful if they take place after the instructor has introduced the materials in-class. This allows for the workshop leader to direct students through immediate hands-on practice with the material.

For the safety of our tutors, we require the faculty member (or an appropriate substitute) to attend and participate in the workshop. We've found that students often ask questions directly related to the class assignment guidelines, which are best addressed by the course instructor, and we greatly value faculty input during the presentation.

Workshop Offerings

  • Documentation & Formatting Workshop (APA, MLA, Chicago/Turabian, ASA)
  • Constructing Literature Reviews
  • Introduction to Academic Writing
  • Composing Resumes & Cover Letters

 

Workshop requests must be made at least 10 business days in advance.

WRITING CENTER SPONSORED WORKSHOPS

Throughout the academic year the Writing Center offers a variety of workshops connected to campus events, such as the Conference on Writing for Social Change, Studypalooza, Academic Integrity Week, etc. Workshop series, including topics and themes, will be announced at the beginning of each semester. All workshops are FREE to participants and run approximately 45-60 minutes.

CLASS VISITS

Class visits are a great opportunity to help students become acclimated with Writing Center resources and tutors.
Also, we find that students are more likely to use our services if a tutor or staff member has made a brief presentation in at least one of their writing-intensive classes. Presentations take approximately 5-10 minutes, and we provide a general overview of services, discuss how to prepare for and what to expect in tutorials, and introduce our MyWCOnline appointment scheduling & online tutoring platform.

We offer the following asynchrnous and synchronous class visit resources:

  • Canvas Module: Import and embed the "UVU Writing Center Virtual Class Visit" module from the Canvas Commons. Students can engage with these virtual resources in order to learn more about our services and Fall operations, as well as meet some of our staff members. 
  • Synchronous Virtual Class Visit: Request a virtual class visit and have a tutor connect with your class via Microsoft Teams. Use the form below to submit a request. 

    Synchronous virtual class visit requests must be made at least 5 business days in advance.
