Writing Workshops
Many students have difficulty finding reliable academic sources, so to address that problem the library and Writing Center are collaborating on a research series to help students with the skills needed to find, understand, integrate, and cite their sources properly. If your students would benefit from this series, please consider offering extra credit. We would love to have a few moments in your class to announce these workshops. And thanks for posting our fliers.We also have a new, free non-credit workshop series for students who want to gain more mastery over punctuation, spelling, and grammar. Students can access our complete list of workshops on our website and print the offerings for the entire week.
