|Title||Creation of Writing Support Resources: On-Call Workshops and Self-Directed Learning|
This project will provide resources to support student writing, with an emphasis on upper-level undergraduates and graduate students. We will produce customizable workshops and train peer facilitators to deliver them. We will also develop accompanying self-directed learning resources, such as resource sheets, annotated sample texts, and exercises that students can individually access online or be used in a peer-facilitated environment.
Our goal with this project is to both increase the range of highly-situated, discipline-specific resources available to students and to increase the capacity of the Centre for Writing and Scholarly Communication (CWSC) to serve a larger number of students. Creating a set of resources that are designed for group and individual use encourages students to be more proactive in their own learning and to take advantage of the knowledge and support embedded in their peer groups. This in turn allows CWSC peer staff to make better use of their time.
