Faculty who complete the WAC/WID Professional Development Program could be eligible for participation in the Writing Fellows Program.
The Writing Fellows Program is a unique program that offers qualified and trained students the opportunity to provide dedicated writing assistance for students of a particular course and discipline.
In addition to spending 3 hours per week in the classroom, a Writing Fellow’s duties include:
- offering 6 hours per week of one-on-one tutoring appointments for the class’s students in the Writing Center
- performing a 1 hour weekly lab for the class’s students
- helping students with their writing assignments
- assisting with assignment design (if desired by the professor)
- serving as a resource for the faculty member and students
Writing Fellows will receive continuous training, support, and feedback from Writing Center staff and will complete an 11-hour training and introduction workshop series during the first week of the Fall 2013 term. For faculty who choose to participate in the Writing Fellows Program, a Writing Fellow can either be a student of their choice who has already taken and is familiar with their course OR a qualified student who is fully trained to be a Writing Fellow but who has not taken their specific course.
