Tutors as Scholars
As part of the Tutoring Writing course, Writing Center tutors are involved in either individual or collaborative research projects on some aspect of writing center theory and practice. Other research projects continue throughout the year. Tutors travel to make scholarly presentations of their work at the Northeast Ohio Writing Centers Association Conference each fall and at the East Central Writing Centers Association Conference each spring.
