Classroom Visitation Program

If you would like a tutor from the University Writing Center to visit your class(es) and give a short presentation about the Center and its resources, please take a moment to fill out the information below and send us your request.

Someone from the Writing Center will contact you to arrange a specific day and time for the visit. We can make these presentations virtually, and some presentations can be made in classroom spaces with appropriate social distancing.  During the presentation, the Writing Center tutor will provide information about the Center’s hours and location and encourage students to bring in drafts of their papers for individual conferencing and assistance. The presentation should take no more than 5-10 minutes.  (Upon request, we can send pamphlets about the Center via campus mail to distribute to your students, or we can forward a pdf file to share electronically if that would be more convenient.)

The Writing Center is available to all Georgia Southern students and the presentation is appropriate for all classes at all levels in all colleges.

Center representatives have given presentations in undergraduate classes and graduate seminars to audiences as small as 5 and as large as 200. They have given presentations to classes in interior design, business management, kinesiology, chemistry, anthropology, history, art, and virtually every department in every college across campus.

If you would like your students to get feedback and response to their drafts before turning them in, or if you would just like your students to know that the Writing Center is available as a resource, please consider having a tutor visit your classes.

We try to schedule most of these visits during the first week or two of classes, but we will be happy to schedule them at another time if it fits more conveniently with your schedule. If you have any questions about this program or want additional information, please contact the director, Dr. Michael Pemberton, at michaelp@georgiasouthern.edu (Statesboro Campus) or Renee Berry at rberry@georgiasouthern.edu (Armstrong Campus).
