Each fall, UCCS offers English 4800/5800, Peer Tutoring: Writing Across the Curriculum. This course introduces students to writing center theories and practices and trains students to work as consultants in the UCCS Writing Center. Although this course emphasizes practical issues related to writing consulting, the course will also help students develop a theoretical foundation for addressing these issues and gain a basic understanding of composition pedagogy.
In addition to attending class and completing assignments, students also spend time in the Writing Center observing sessions and, later in the semester, conducting their own consultations under the guidance of a Writing Center staff member. Those students who successfully complete the semester's coursework may apply to join the staff of the Writing Center the following semester.
