Writing Center Information for Instructors

The Writing Center invites instructors from across the curriculum to inquire about involving us in their course to integrate writing and peer collaboration.

Presentations and In-Class Workshops

We can visit your class to provide basic information about the Writing Center or collaborate on facilitating an interactive workshop on a specific part of the writing process relevant to your assignment and students. Here are some of the workshop topics that we can facilitate:

  • Getting Started: Developing a Writing Plan
  • Organization: From Planning to Paragraphing
  • So What?: Moving from Facts to Arguable Thesis Statements
  • Using Sources: Quoting, Paraphrasing, and Summarizing
  • Introduction to Peer Review + Peer Review Workshop
  • Decoding Feedback & Revising
  • Citation Basics + MLA, APA, or Chicago
  • Writing the Personal Statement for Graduate or Professional School
  • What do your BU professors say about college writing (Freshman Focus only)

We will work with you to individualize the presentation for your needs! We are also available to collaborate with clubs or organizations. 

Refer Individual Students to the Writing Center

Please positively encourage all students to visit the Writing Center—remind them that we are a great resource for all students and not a punishment. When you refer students, give them the Writing Center's website so they can make an appointment: bellarmine.edu/writingcenter. Ensure that students know how to make an appointment and where to find the Writing Center (ARC, Library B-level).
