For the remainder of the Winter 2020 semester, all peer writing center appointments will be conducted online on the W20 Virtual Peer Writing Center schedule. You have two options for your appointment:

 
1) "eTutoring"--we provide written feedback on your writing project (fewer than 10 pages, please) via email
  • make an appointment on the schedule
  • combine the assignment prompt and your paper into one document if possible; a wide variety of document formats are accepted
  • upload your document to WCOnline at the bottom of the appointment form
  • give your document a name in the corresponding box in WCOnline (your last name would be a good choice; this is helpful when the consultant downloads the document to respond to it)
  • include in the document a copy of the assignment prompt or rubric
  • as a backup, please to share a link to your document via Google Docs and ensure that anyone at University of Michigan can edit it
  • watch your email for notification that a peer consultant has responded to your paper. You can expect that your paper will be responded to by the end of the appointment time
 
2) "Online appointment"--you have a real-time online video/audio, audio, or text chat consultation with a peer writing consultant
  • this is our normal OWL service
  • make an appointment on the schedule
  • log back in to WCOnline approximately five to ten minutes before the start of the appointment
  • open the appointment and click "Start or Join Online Consultation"
  • a peer consultant will join you for a video or text chat appointment in real time

 

NOTE:

  • "Online appointments" begin on the hour and last 45 minutes
  • you may schedule one online appointment or eTutoring appointment per day
  • you may "drop-in" to additional online appointments if a consultant is available
  • please be considerate of our consultants and your fellow students: if you cannot attend your appointment, please cancel it at least one hour before its scheduled start time

 

We look forward to working with you in our new virtual space! If you have questions or concerns, please email Sweetland Receptionists, scwreceptionists@umich.edu OR sweetlandinfo@umich.edu.
