Instructional Support

RWSSC tutors and other Academic Support Program faculty and staff collaborate with departments across the University to strengthen the graduate experience. Instructional support includes collaboratively designed in-class workshops; and consulting, presentations, and workshops with and for professors.

In-class workshops for students
Tutors facilitate in-class workshops for undergraduate courses, at faculty invitation and with faculty collaboration. Workshop options include Cite/Write/Right and Time Management during Paper Writing. Also, instructors may request that tutors visit classes and/or department meetings to provide brief introductions to Reading, Writing, and Study Strategies services.

Consulting for students and faculty
At invitation, RWSSC tutors provide advice to students and faculty who are in the process of creating and maintaining writing support groups such as a mixed faculty-student group focusing on producing writing, and a student group focusing on mastering APA style.

Consulting and workshops for faculty
Academic Support Programs staff and faculty also offer consulting for faculty seeking assistance in pedagogical development. Specific examples include workshops on paper-conferencing, and on supporting students' ability to focus on credible sources while integrating current technology in the classroom.

Academic Support Programs' In the Classroom and Beyond: Innovations for Academic Success (April 27, 2011) forum focuses on interactive workshops for faculty development. Click the link above to view the complete list of session descriptions.
