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 much 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.
Request a Writing Fellow here. The deadline to request a Writing Fellow is November 30, 2020. We will let you know if we were able to place a fellow with you by December 17.
