Writing & Oral Presentation Consultations

 

The WCH provides one-to-one consultations for students at every stage of their assignment preparation process (from gathering ideas to revising a draft), and offers help with any aspect of their writing and oral presentations (from specific assignments to general writing and communication skills). The WCH is staffed by tutors who provide these consultations at no charge to the student.

 

What to expect from the WCH writing/ oral presentation consultation:
- Tutors do not proofread nor edit papers, slides or oral presentation scripts. They work with you on higher-order concerns to

  increase the quality of the work as   a whole.
- You help set the agenda for the conference.The consultant needs to know what you are trying to accomplish, what you have   trouble with, etc.
- You will think, write and talk about how you write OR talk about how you make an oral presentation. You will also discuss the

  writing/ oral presentation process in general.
- Our aim is two-fold: to help you with your concerns about the paper/ oral presentation at hand and to suggest to you

  something new about the craft of writing/ preparation.

 

How to prepare for the WCH writing consultation:
- Bring two copies of your paper if you are working on a draft, one for you and one for the consultant.
- Bring the assignment sheet if you are working on a particular course assignment. This will help the tutor provide good   feedback.
- Bring a copy of your instructor’s comments if you want to discuss how to include feedback you have already received on the   assignment.
- If you have notes, previous writing, a particular text, and/or research materials related to your draft, bring them to the

  appointment.

 

How to prepare for the WCH oral presentation consultation:

- Bring a soft copy of your slides if you already have them.

- Bring the assignment sheet if you are working on a particular course assignment. This will help the tutor provide good

  feedback.

- Bring a copy of your instructor’s comments if you want to discuss how to include feedback you have already received on the

  assignment.

- If you have notes and/or research materials related to your oral presentation, bring them to the appointment.
