Writing Center Resources for Faculty
The Buffalo State Writing Center continues to offer a number of initiatives to support the faculty this semester. Faculty members in all disciplines are invited to take advantage of the following:
Commercials: If you wish to encourage your students to visit the Writing Center, please consider scheduling a live “commercial”—a 10-minute in-class presentation by a tutor who will review the services offered by the center, show students how to make an appointment, and discuss the benefits of one-on-one writing support.
Made-to-Order Workshops: Is there a writing issue your students tend to struggle with or a concept you want to reinforce? We are happy to design and deliver a 30-to-40-minute in-class workshop on a writing-related topic (for example, citation styles, thesis statements, effective peer review). Please request a workshop at least two weeks in advance.
Individual Consultations: Maggie Herb, director of the Writing Center and assistant professor of English, offers individual consultations with faculty members on both pedagogical concerns (writing assignment design and implementation, for example) and professional or academic writing projects.
To schedule a commercial, a workshop, or an individual consultation, please contact Maggie Herb.
