Episode Notes

Today, our guest is Dr. Becca Cassady, Graduate Writing Center program director at Baylor University. Dr. Cassady holds a PhD in rhetoric and composition from Baylor, with a dissertation exploring the ways writing consultants draw on prior knowledge when facing unfamiliarity in tutoring sessions. In her research, Dr. Cassady aims to identify ways to help writers and writing consultants approach writing as a subject to be studied and understood. In her current role, she directs a team of graduate writing consultants from across disciplines as they work with students on their writing and publications, offering feedback on writing projects and helping foster effective writing and publication habits. We are delighted to have Dr. Cassady on the show to discuss one growing area of her consultation work with graduate students: crafting teaching philosophy statements.
