Class and Professional Development Opportunity

The business and professional writing consultants are hosting a callout on Monday 3/27 at 6:00 PM to talk about ENGL 390B, the practicum class students can take in order to work as writing center tutors.

Working in the writing center is valuable regardless of major– it teaches collaboration, negotiation, mentoring and invention in ways that no other space does. I think its an invaluable place to develop your professional tool box, and I think its an important resume-builder whether your plan is more school or working in the field. The Purdue Owl has cultivated both academic and industry awareness. It’s a tool everyone uses and understands, even if they don’t necessarily get why writing is important.

Working in the writing center is worth pursuing. If you’d like to talk about this more, go to the callout. I hear there will also be pizza.




I am a PhD student in Rhetoric and Composition and Purdue University. I currently teach first year composition. My research interests include threshold concepts in composition, invention strategies, service-learning, community engagement, and professional and technical writing.
