Academic Learning Center- NE Writing Center: Faculty Resources

Information about scheduling orientations, workshops, and grammar diagnostics.

Orientations

Welcome faculty!

The NE Writing Center is here to support your students.

We love to have your classes visit our area.

Students who visit the Writing Center are much more likely to come back for a tutoring session. 

 We offer a short orientation for your classes (ten - fifteen minutes).

During this time we explain what happens in a session and what we do and do not do.

If visiting us is inconvenient, we will visit your classroom!

To schedule a tour call 817-515-6936 or 817-515-6677.

You can also email Elizabeth at elizabeth.parrish@tccd.edu

or Taylor at taylor.jordan2@tccd.edu .

We can combine the tour a short workshop or the grammar diagnostic.

 

Workshops

The Writing Center offers many workshops throughout the semester. We publish a schedule each semester for workshops in NACB 1114.

We are happy to present a workshop in your classroom.

We will also schedule a special session in the Writing Center for your class.

We can also add a workshop if there is a topic you need.
