All UAB faculty members can request writing workshops for their courses. If you request this service, you can expect that Writing Center consultants will work closely with you to plan a workshop that best fits the needs of your students. Workshops can address any stage or element of the writing process, including pre-writing, drafting, revision, and editing. Workshops can also target specific writing skills, such as proofreading for style or incorporating sources. Possible workshop topics include: Getting Started on a Writing Project, Improving Your Writing Process, or Proofreading Your Writing.
In addition to student workshops, the UWC provides teaching workshops for any UAB faculty who are interested in improving how they teach writing. Possible workshop topics include: Using Write-to-Learn Strategies or Creating Rubrics for Writing Assignments. Stay tuned for teaching workshops throughout the year. Faculty may also request a workshop or consultation about the teaching of writing; just like the student workshops, these can be tailored to meet specific needs and goals.
Faculty members can request classroom visits to inform their students about the writing center. In only 15 minutes, we can explain our services and encourage students to take advantage of what we offer. We are happy to visit your classroom or hold the orientation in the UWC—your choice! Please contact Jaclyn Wells for more information.
