To introduce your students to the writing center, we offer brief presentations called "roadshows" available in the formats below.
If your course meets synchronously, we can schedule a tutor to join your class meeting on Zoom, Webex, or Collaborate Ultra to deliver a "roadshow" that describes the Writing Center's services and resources as well as how to make an appointment.
An alternative to inviting a tutor to join your class is to embed or screen this video (3:37), which describes the Writing Center and its services and shows students how to register and make an appointment.
If you are teaching a graduate course, consider linking to our graduate services video (3:22), which describes the Writing Center's services for graduate students.
If you want a video that focuses only on the process for making an appointment (with no description of services), use this shorter version (1:34).
Find instructions for linking to and embedding videos in your Blackboard course here.
