The Writing Center added a graduate tutor, Kim James, to work with graduate students.
Lisa Lebduska, director of the Writing Center, began helping students with oral presentations. The process involved videotaping speeches by students who would later be working at the London project center and then individually reviewing these speeches with the students.
- The Writing Center moved to its new permanent location on the second floor of the project center.
- The Writing Center expanded designated tutoring to include CM2001. Designated tutoring had previously been incorporated into ID2050 and CS3043.
- The Writing Center began calling itself the Writing Workshop, a division of the Center for Communication Across the Curriculum.
- Designated tutoring has been incorporated into the preparation for the Venice project center.
The Writing Workshop web site has been redesigned by Kim James and edited with the help of Amy Marr and her staff. This new web site should be up by the time you read this article, at http://www.wpi.edu/+writing.
Why all the changes? Are we trying to confuse everyone at WPI? Of course not, well, maybe a little. Seriously though, all of these changes allow us to better serve the WPI community. Our current location is more spacious than our previous facilities, and it even has windows (no, not just the operating system). What changes are we working on for the future of the Writing Workshop and the Center for Communication Across the Curriculum?
Despite all of these changes, the Writing Workshop still offers help with any written assignment. If you want help with a paper, project, resume, essay, letter, or anything else involving writing, sign up for an appointment on the web at http://www.wpi.edu/+writing, call us at 831-6070, or just stop by. Help with oral presentations is also available, contact us for more information.
- The Oral Presentation Workshop, another division of the Center for Communication Across the Curriculum, will soon be staffed by some of the peer tutors currently working as Writing Consultants in the Writing Workshop, once they have completed an oral presentation training workshop.
- Lisa Lebduska, director of the Center for Communication Across the Curriculum, is looking for people who are interested in becoming tutors. This will require taking EN3003, a peer tutor training ISP, in D-Term. If you are interested, contact Lisa Lebduska by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 831-5503, or just stop by the Writing Workshop located on the upper level of the Project Center.
