TutorCon 2013 Highlight Video
TutorCon offers all University writing consultants and administrators the opportunity to meet each other and share experiences connected to working with student writers. In 2013, this event hosts writing consultants from our Main Campus Writing Center and our two regional campuses, located in Tupelo and Southaven, as well as consultants from the FedEx Center at The University of Mississippi and Itawamba Community College.
About the 2013 Theme
Just as trees react to changes in the ecosystem, so must writing centers respond to their ever-changing circumstances. With the changing resources and audiences of writing centers, we constantly have to develop new methods of serving others. Additionally, writing centers across campuses work together as a community, encouraging growth and development in one another. How does your writing center fit into the ecosystem of your campus? How do you provide a fertile space for ideas to develop? What strategies do you use to encourage growth among the writers on your campus? What strategies do you use to respond to evolving technologies? What resources do you use? How do you branch out? How do you adapt and evolve in order to thrive?
