Face-to-Face: Traditional, one-hour in-person appointment with a writing center consultant. There will be time for the student and consultant to review the piece of writing, time for the student to work on revisions on his or her own, and then more time to go over the changes with the consultant
When to Use: Students should schedule this type of appointment when they would like a thorough review of a paper with time to discuss the writing, time to revise and have revisions checked by us, and tips and resources for future writing
Upload Paper for Emailed Review: For this type of appointment, students WILL NOT meet in-person. To schedule, students look for the "Upload paper for emailed review" option on the Writing Center schedule. Fill out the appointment request as usual, and upload your paper after saving the appointment. Then, check their email periodically for notification that the appointment has been modified. They will now be able to see which WC consultant is reviewing the paper. Once the paper is ready, the student will receive an email with it attached. The paper will also be available by logging into the appointment and downloading it. The reviewed paper will be returned by the end of the scheduled appointment time. If the paper is not returned within one hour of the appointment end time, students should email email@example.com
When to Use: Students should schedule this type of appointment when they would like a thorough review of a paper but do not have time to come to the office when we are open. Students be on their own for making revisions using our feedback.
Online Real-Time Appointment: This type of appointment is available most evenings and occurs from the comfort of the student's own home, Starbucks, or wherever else they happen to be! Students simply log into our scheduling system 5-10 minutes before the scheduled appointment, and open the appointment window. They will see a button that says "'open' or 'join' online appointment". The student and the WC consultant will be able to communicate via interactive white board, chat window, and camera/speakers (optional). We still encourage students to upload the paper when they schedule these appointments, as it gives us time to review it before our online meeting.
When to Use: Students should schedule this type of appointment if they like to use technology and would like a thorough review of a paper with time to discuss their writing, but they can't make it to the office in person during normal business hours.
