The OWCA will continue to assist writing centers who need mentoring on designing online support services and/or moving their operations online due to the Coronavirus. At this time, mentoring is open to both members and non-members of the OWCA. The Mentoring and Resources Committee will oversee this program starting in January 2021 (learn how to sign up for this committee!).
Request a Mentor
To request a mentor, please email the following information to email@example.com:
- Your institution/association and the populations you will be working with online (high school students, undergraduates, returning adults, etc.)
- What kind of guidance are you looking for? What is your goal or hope for mentoring?
- What kind of online services are you researching or considering?
- What technologies are available through your center or larger institution/association?
After receiving your request, we will connect you with one of our mentors via email. You can then continue the conversation through any methods/technologies that work best for both you and your mentor.
