Offer credit based on your students' ability to reflect on the learning experience s/he had at the writing center rather than solely for the student's attendance (see the sample clauses below). You may also contact Assistant Director Caty Chapman if you would like to confirm that a particular student visited the UWC.
| Sample Syllabus Statement:
"The Margaret H. Ordoubadian University Writing Center is located in LIB 362 and at www.mtsu.edu/uwc. Here, students can receive valuable one-to-one assistance with their writing. Conferences are available
by appointment (904-8237); please don't wait until the last minute to seek their help. In order to receive three points extra credit (per visit up to two per essay) for
attending the University Writing Center, you must write a brief narrative paragraph
(per visit) about your experience (i.e. who you worked with, what you discussed, what
you learned, how your writing changed after the session). I will accept these paragraphs
on the day the essay is due. "
Ask your students to write and submit a writing or revision plan based on what they
learned/discussed during the UWC session
If you would like for your entire class to receive the same specific writing training, email Caty Chapman for assistance in scheduling one of our in-class workshops (for a complete list of workshops, click here). Two Writing Assistants will come to your classroom and conduct a session that can be tailored to your assignment, concerns, or course goals.
