Workshops & Class Visits
The NEU Writing Center provides faculty with classroom visits and workshop services. We can provide a classroom visit to inform students about the role and services of the Writing Center, or we can help with a class period workshop on subjects like peer review or presentational skills.
To request a class visit or workshop, e-mail Meg Tarquinio (email@example.com) for more information.
We also support faculty as writers themselves. Our services are available to Northeastern faculty who might be looking to get feedback on their own writing and/or classroom communication.
To keep your students informed of our services, you may wish to include this description in your syllabus:
The Writing Center
The Northeastern University Writing Center is located in 412 Holmes Hall and in Snell Library (for current hours see http://www.northeastern.edu/english/writing-center/ or call 617-373-4549) and offers free and friendly help for any level writer, including help with reading complex texts, conceptualizing a writing project, refining your writing process (i.e., planning, researching, organization, drafting, revising, and editing), and using sources effectively. You can receive feedback face-to-face during regular hours or via email/online response. Questions about the Writing Center can be directed to Assistant Director Megan Tarquinio <M.Tarquinio@neu.edu> or to Professor Neal Lerner <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Writing Center Director.
Adding a Link to the NU Writing Center on Your Bb Course Page
A really easy way to provide your students ready access to the Writing Center’s website is to add a link to the Writing Center homepage on your class Blackboard site. Here’s how to do it:
1) On your course homepage, you have a control panel on the left side, and it’s here that you’ll be adding a link to the Writing Center.
2) Click on the + in the top left of that box and then choose “Web link”:
3) In the Add External Link box, name the link “NU Writing Center” and paste in this URL: http://www.northeastern.edu/english/writing-center/
4) Check the “Available to Users” box and click “Submit.”
That’s it! Now your students will see a link to the Writing Center’s homepage each time they’re in your Bb course site.
