Utilizing Writing Centers
Created by members of Karen Uehling’s Spring 2017 ENGL 540: Issues in Writing, Teaching, and Learning course:
A Conversation Starter
We’re beginning our inquiry by examining how various basic writing course models utilize centers, how writing centers and writing center pedagogy inform basic writing teaching practices, and how writing centers serve basic writing students. We hope to start a conversation about the benefits and potential of collaboration between these fields.

Bibliography Notice: Many of the sources featured throughout this wiki do not come from the field of basic writing and may not entirely address our unique circumstances. However, each of the articles/studies that have been cited and gathered are being discussed within the wider circle of composition studies, which is ultimately at the heart of what we do. As such, the information and resources offered throughout will hopefully prove to be easily transferable and highly applicable to some of the duties and responsibilities of basic writing instructors.
