One on One Consultations
These meetings will be between a student and a consultant. One on one consultations are designed to improve student work and encourage students to take an active role in the revision of their work. Writing consultations will be student-centered. That means they will largely be guided by conversations about the work. The student must email a copy of the paper/project to the consultant. Consultants will pose questions and will use the answers to tailor the session to the needs and skill level of the student.
Peer Review Circles
These meetings will require three-four students to sign up. Peer Review Circles are meant to foster a collaborative energy in the process of revising work. Students will be asked to read their peers’ work before the meeting in order to ensure that they are ready to discuss areas that need improvement. The consultant will also read the papers or projects ahead of time. For the meeting, the students will have a conversation about their work, while the consultants facilitate the discussion. Only one student will be responsible for signing the group up. S/he must include all of their names, SU email addresses. This student must email copies of all of the papers/projects to the consultant (and only her/his ID (U) number, necessary).
Microsoft Teams Meetings
Microsoft Teams meetings may be held for both one on one consultations and peer review circles. They must be scheduled at least three hours ahead of time. The consultant will invite the student to the virtual consultation on Microsoft Teams via email. No other online platform will be used.
In-person meetings may be held for both one on one consultations and peer review circles. For scheduled appointments, students will be required to schedule at least three hours ahead of time in order for the consultant to read the work ahead of time. Walk-in appointments will be available for in-person meetings. But the consultant will have less time to devote to the meeting, as s/he will not have been able to read the work beforehand.
