The Writing Centre is part of the Centre for Teaching and Learning, and writing faculty offer support for instructors as well as for students. Our goal is to help you, as an instructor, develop your ability to use writing as a teaching tool, and to support students in developing their ability to communicate effectively in your discipline.
Dr. Nancy Johnston coordinates our course support, which includes consultations on course and assignment design, as well as partnering with faculty to develop in-class writing workshops, and tailored instructional materials. We can also offer workshops for TAs on a range of topics related to writing and teaching, including strategies for using marking to give formative feedback.
Courses instructors and TAs are welcome to take advantage of the support for writing assignment design and classroom support that we offer faculty. UTSC TA Services also offers workshops and teaching support for TAs on campus. For information on TA support at UTSC, contact Dr. Sheryl Stevenson.
We are also happy to consult and direct you to experts in the Centre for Teaching and Learning to support your assignments.
English Language Development Consultations
Almost half the students in our classes speak English as their second (or even third or fourth language). For strategies to support these students, visit the ELD faculty support page.
