As part of its efforts to support the teaching of writing, the UD Writing Center trains undergraduate writing fellows to assist full-time faculty members with the instruction of writing in courses throughout the University curriculum. Writing Fellows attend class meetings, meet with students individually or in small groups to discuss their drafts-in-progress, help facilitate peer response and discussions, and offer feedback to the professor on writing assignments and students' progress. Working with a Writing Fellow is like working with an Undergraduate Teaching Assistant, with a focus especially on student writing.
Please check out the 2020-21 Faculty & Fellows Handbook to read more about what Writing Fellows can do and what a commitment to a Writing Fellow would mean for you.
During the 2020-21 Academic Year, all Writing Fellows services will be online only--no face-to-face meetings. If you are teaching a hybrid face-to-face and online course, you may still request a Writing Fellow--they just won't be able to meet with your class physically during "in person" weeks.
The potential for quick changes to the Fall 2020 class schedule due to the evolving Covid-19 situation means that Writing Fellows assignments will need to be made later than usual. If you would like to request a Writing Fellow for Fall 2020, please do so by clicking here by August 25. Requests received by August 14 have a better chance of being accommodated.
