The materials below are for my portion of this panel, which involves describing my online writing center in detail.


The U.S. DOE recently reported that the majority of college students are now classified as nontraditional, suggesting that post-secondary education is becoming more diverse and must provide more adequate institutional support. In this panel, four writing center professionals will share the shape, role, and offerings of their online writing centers, with careful consideration of their varying institutional contexts, student demographics (including nontraditional characteristics), financial support, and staff. Lastly, the presenters will discuss their visions for increasing access for all students and mitigating barriers for 21st century student bodies.
