To introduce your students to the Writing Center, we offer brief presentations called "roadshows" available in the formats below.
If your course meets face-to-face on the Fairfax campus, we can schedule a consultant to visit your class in person to deliver a "roadshow" that describes the Writing Center's services and resources as well as how to make an appointment. You can also schedule a time to bring your class to our state-of-the-art instructional space, the Lab for Writing and Communication in Johnson Center 227E, where a Writing Center consultant will deliver a roadshow and provide a brief tour of our space.
If your course meets synchronously online, we can schedule a consultant to join your class meeting on Zoom or Collaborate Ultra and deliver the "roadshow" virtually.
An alternative to inviting a consultant to your class is to embed or link to this video (3:01) that describes the Writing Center and its services and provides information about how to make an appointment.
If you are teaching a graduate course, consider linking to our graduate student services video (3:22), which describes the Writing Center's services for graduate students.
If you want a short video that only shows students how to make an appointment (with no description of services), use this link (1:49).
Find instructions for linking to and embedding videos in your Blackboard course here.
