Description

The Writing Center has changed to offer, not just face-to-face tutoring, but group tutoring, tutoring for multilingual students, tutoring in the high school, tutoring online, course-embedded tutoring, tutoring in professional programs, and tutoring in the Graduate School. Tutors and Coordinators are learning that these developments brand the updated community of practice in the Mary G. Walsh Writing Center as the “‘literal center’ for writing” across the university and the community, just as Michael Pemberton describes in “Rethinking the WAC/Writing Center/Graduate Student Connection.”
