On September 29th, Rachel Oberta and Carlos Borges, tutors within the Center for Excellence in Writing, presented and guided discussions for the Southeastern Writing Center Association (SWCA) at Nova University.
The SWCA was founded in 1981 to advance literacy; to further the theoretical, practical, and political concerns of writing center professionals; and to serve as a forum for the writing concerns of students, faculty, staff, and writing professionals from both academic and non-academic communities in the southeastern region of the United States.
Orbeta discussed strategies for challenging tutoring sessions in the writing center while Borges used artwork to reflect upon his philosophy of tutoring.
Other tutors attended the event where they learned different strategies from other university writing centers.
Congratulations Rachel and Carlos!
