The new Teaching Block on the Coleraine campus will include a dedicated space for a drop-in writing clinic, a service run by students for students.
Outline of Activity
Students who can write well will be trained to work as volunteer tutors in THE WRITING PAD, to help students who struggle with the writing process.
Student tutors will gain skills in teaching effective writing skills, as well as gain interpersonal communication skills.
Student Tutors will write a report on their experience working at THE WRITING PAD.
There will also be a system in place to record numbers of students using and service, and a survey of student satisfaction with the service.
Level of Commitment
20+ hours per semester.
Student tutors will work by a rota system at the centre, and will fit hours around their class schedule.
