Online General Writing Consultation

An Online General Writing Consultation is a web-based, real-time appointment in which a student meets with a Writing Consultant to discuss a piece of the student’s writing. This meeting occurs within WCOnline, in a virtual meeting place called the Online Consultation Space. Discussion in the Online Consultation Space is text-based and facilitated by a Text Chat Area and Interactive Whiteboard.

In an Online General Writing Consultation, as in an onsite, face-to-face General Writing Consultation, our Writing Consultants work with students to develop, articulate, and organize their thoughts and ideas. In doing so, our Writing Consultants help students gain additional confidence in their abilities to communicate what they want to say in writing. Essentially, our Writing Consultants provide the tools for students to discover and articulate solutions to the intellectual challenges presented by a given writing assignment.
