We also offer several presentations on topics of general interest that we can do for whole classes. See menu below. Click on workshop titles for PDFs of the presentation materials. Instructors are welcome to download, use, and link to these materials, but we do recommend requesting that a tutor give presentations so that you get the most out of them.
If you are an instructor interested in scheduling a 15-minute presentation on one of the following topics, please email UWC Director Jaclyn Wells with your preferred date and the meeting time and location for your course. Please note that one-on-one consultations are our priority, so we may not be able to accomodate last minute requests or requests for workshops during busy weeks.
- Understanding your writing assignment
- Giving peer feedback
- Editing for common errors
- Writing professional email
- Acknowledging sources and avoiding plagiarism
- Using the University Writing Center
Accelerate Your Dissertation
Are you working on a dissertation and needing support? Check out Accelerate Your Dissertation, monthly workshops hosted by the UAB Graduate School. This semester, the Graduate School will also offer two opportunities to learn more about the Institutional Review Board (IRB). In addition to attending these Accelerate Your Dissertation and IRB information sessions, thesis and dissertation writers are encouraged to make appointments with UWC tutors for one-on-one help.
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.
