Classroom Visitation Program
If you would like a consultant from the University Writing Center to visit your class(es) and give a short presentation about the Center and its resources, please take a moment to fill out the information below and send us your request.
Someone from the Writing Center will contact you to arrange a specific day and time for the visit. During the presentation, the Writing Center representative will distribute information about the Center’s hours and location and encourage students to bring in drafts of their papers for individual conferencing and assistance. The presentation should take no more than 5-10 minutes.
The Writing Center is available to all Georgia Southern students and the presentation is appropriate for all classes at all levels in all colleges.
Center representatives have given presentations in undergraduate classes and graduate seminars to audiences as small as 5 and as large as 200. They have given presentations to classes in interior design, business management, kinesiology, chemistry, anthropology, history, art, and virtually every department in every college across campus. Since representatives began making these visits in Fall 2000, they have visited nearly 500 classes and presented to more than 10,000 students.
If you would like your students to get feedback and response to their drafts before turning them in, or if you would just like your students to know that the Writing Center exists, please consider having a representative visit your classes.
Representatives try to make most of their visits during the first week or two of classes but are happy to schedule another time if it fits more conveniently with your schedule. If you have any questions about this program or want additional information, please contact the director, Dr. Michael Pemberton, at 871-1383.
