The University Writing Center Wants to Partner with You!

We support our students best when we are in conversation with those teaching in the classroom. We can work with you to plan and design assignments and prompts, develop best practices for giving feedback on writing or other kinds of texts, and meet your instructional needs. 

What We Can Provide

  • UWC Orientation Class Presentations: Our standard orientation presentation takes about 10 minutes and gives a brief who, what, when, where, how, and why of the UWC. We also include a mini-mock tutoring session so that students can see in person what we do here. During Fall 2020, we are offering both in-person and online class presentations. To schedule your UWC Orientation Presentation, please email us at UWC@baylor.edu at least two days in advance of the requested presentation date with the following information: 
    • Your name
    • Title and section number of class
    • Time and meeting place of class (or Zoom link)
    • Number of students in class
    • Ideal date and time for the presentation (we can come at the beginning or end of class)
    • Type of presentation (standard writing center intro or something else)
    • Any additional information you would like us to know
  • Writing Workshops/Class Presentations: We have several writing workshops available upon request that can be modified to meet your specific course needs. We can provide these on location in the UWC or in your class. Current workshop topics include the following:
    • Writing Thesis Statements
    • Using Evidence in Your Writing
    • Developing a Research Project
    • Getting the Most out of Peer Review
    • How to Cite and Document Sources (MLA, APA, Chicago, etc.)
    • Strategies for Getting Started
    • Technical Writing Basics
  • Syllabus Statements: The UWC has several templates for syllabus statements about the services of the UWC that you can adapt for your courses. 
  • Instructional Consultations: Our staff is happy to work with you in designing and structuring your writing assignments.
  • Graduate Teaching Assistant Consultations: We will work with your graduate assistants to help them most effectively respond to your students’ writing.
  • Writing Studios: In a writing studio, students enrolled in a class meet regularly outside of the classroom space in small groups to actively work together on their research and writing. A UWC consultant facilitates these groups free of charge to you.
