In keeping with standard writing centre practice, our tutorial methods are collaborative and focus on the individual needs of student writers at every developmental stage. Tutors and librarians work with all students, regardless of program or level of ability. Examples of what we help with include:
Instructors play an important role in helping students understand the purpose of the Writing Centre and how we deliver our services. Knowing what to expect and how to prepare themselves will enable students to make the most of their appointments.
*If you are a LINC instructor, please contact your Associate Chair for class visit information.
"The Writing Centre is a free appointment-based academic service for NorQuest students located in the Learner Centre, which can be found on the 2nd floor of the Singhmar Centre for Learning at the downtown Edmonton campus. The Writing Centre team is comprised of tutors and librarians who provide personalized support at every stage of the writing process. During your appointment, you will work one-on-one with a member of the Writing Centre team for 30 minutes. We will discuss your concerns/questions and work together to address 1 or 2 aspects of your research or writing. We invite you to make an appointment early in the term! Come to the appointment prepared with any assignment guidelines and marking guides provided by your instructor. We can also meet with you online if you prefer! Drop-in writing and research help are also available at the Tutorial Centre and Library. Please ask staff for information about accessing these services.
Note: The Writing Centre does not proofread or edit student work. Book an appointment and find more information at libguides.norquest.ca/WritingCentre. Contact us by phone at 780.644.5864, or email firstname.lastname@example.org."
