I’m a UW-Madsion professor, an academic staff instructor, or a teaching assistant. How can I arrange a Writing Center instructor to visit my or co-teach my class?
Your students are more likely to visit the Writing Center after a member of our staff has made a brief presentation about our services in your class. Every year, we make such presentations in undergraduate and graduate courses across campus.
You can learn more about the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program here.
Writing Fellows are assigned to Writing Intensive or Comm-B courses in which they work closely with professors as well as student writers. Learn more here.
I’m a professor or academic staff instructor. How can I find out more about having a Writing Fellow work with one of my courses?
Professors teaching small Writing Intensive or Comm-B classes without TAs can ask to work with Writing Fellows. Learn more here.
How can I get permission to link to the Writing Center website or use Writing Center instructional materials for my teaching?
If you would likepermission to add a link to the Writing Center on your website or to use handouts reproduced from the Writer’s Handbook, please email us here.
We have developed numerous handouts that you can duplicate for use in your teaching. For many of these handouts, see our website, under “Writer’s Handbook,” or request a copy of a specific handout to be sent to you via campus mail by email.
At the Writing Center we believe in revision. Ask anyone.
But it’s not just what we tell everyone who walks in the door. It’s what we do. This web site is no exception to our rule. We’re constantly revising, improving, and responding to the feedback that people are kind enough to take the time to give us.
You can be one of those people! Please, take a moment and fill out this form to tell us what you think about our web site, or about anything we do (in an official capacity, of course). We appreciate the opportunity to make our resources more useful to you!
