For Faculty

Brief Presentations

Faculty can schedule Brief Writing Center Presentations. These informational presentations introduce students to the support and services available through the Writing Center. We recommend scheduling these presentations early in the semester, but they can be scheduled at any time. These presentations take approximately 10 minutes and can be requested here.

In-Class Workshops

During In-Class Workshops, Writing Center Mentors visit your classes to work individually or in small groups with students. These workshops are designed to offer students targeted writing support at crucial points in their research and writing processes for course projects. Lewis faculty who have scheduled in-class workshops have reported much stronger student writing as a result. Please email Tom McNamara to schedule an in-class workshop.

Embedded Mentoring

Through our Embedded Mentoring program, you can require your students to meet with a writing mentor for writing feedback on specific course assignments. Our mentors will be trained to offer feedback suited to your course and discipline. Embedded mentoring is especially suited for asynchronous online courses.

Faculty Professional Development

The Writing Center and Writing Across the Curriculum program offer faculty professional development opportunities each year. In addition to workshops for Advanced Writing instructors, the Center and WAC host a writing studies scholar each spring for a faculty workshop series. Previous presenters have included national leaders in WAC and writing centers like Dan Melzer, April Baker-Bell, Anne Geller, and John Gallagher. To stay updated on professional development opportunities, email Tom McNamara to be added to the WAC Blackboard page.
