Technology Coming Through the WLU Writing Centre

An Inkshed 30 presentation by Jordana Garbati, Haydn Lawrence, and Boba Samuels, Wilfrid Laurier University

Fulfilling the conference theme of taking risks, a group from Wilfrid Laurier University outlined recent experiments with technology in their writing centre. Examples include a website redesign, the introduction of a twitter feed and a tutor-generated blog for publicity, development of a free smartphone app for vocabulary development, and the switch to WCOnline for scheduling appointments. Besides amusing and informative visuals, the slides linked below will show you the research and theory underlying these innovations, with a useful reference list at the end.
