Poster Session

The Professional Writing Center: A Digital Platform for Business School Students

Track: Learning & Teaching Innovations

Abstract:
In this workshop we will briefly share the ‘lessons learned’ in the Professional Writing and Communication Initiative at the Cotsakos College of Business at William Paterson University. We will concentrate on our most recent project – the use of interactive web-based video for one-on-one tutoring sessions. We will share our experiences working with undergraduate and graduate students in both online and traditional courses. During the session participants will be able to participate in a demonstration of tutoring sessions with our ‘Writing Coach’.
