Dennis Bennett at the OSU Writing Center has created a really cool portal where Writing Assistants can blog about their thougths, anxieties, and experiences. It seems to be a really cool venue for students to post their thoughts about the Writing Center, and their experiences there. Also, I’m quite impressed with the willingness of new WC assistants to share their anxieties and experiences. It’s nice to see this venue for new WC assistantsâ€”who in the past were supposed to keep private journalsâ€”to be able to publicly discuss what they are learning and thinking. It’s also a community building experience because sometimes an assistant can work at the WC and never really get to know other assistants. This is an excellent opportunity to build community, foster communication and the development of ideas, and create a stronger learning community made up of assistants. It’s really exciting!
