Neal Lerner on Writing Centers and Writing Center Research

People in this story

a podcast about teachers talking writing, dedicated to building a supportive community, committed to facilitating conversations that move across institutions and positions, and designed to help celebrate the labor teachers do inside and outside the classroom

“In Writing Centers, I don’t think we necessarily take that [deficit-oriented] stance naturally. I think the stance is, well, what do students know how to do, how can we figure that out, and how can we bring that to bear on what they’re trying to do now?”

Professor and Department Chair Neal Lerner has been featured on Pedagogue, a podcast for teachers of writing, for his thoughts on writing centers, writing center research and scholarship, training peer consultants, and constraints that affect writing center work.
