Drop-in and Guided Writing Room - S312 Ross
Can't get an appointment? Only need a little help? Need a place to write? Have no fear - the WC's New Drop-In and Guided Writing Room is here!
Beginning the week of September 24, our new Drop-in and Guided Writing Room in Ross S312 will be open Monday to Friday from 10:30-12:30 for students who have no appointment, but would like a short consultation with an instructor, have a specific question or two, or just want to work on their writing in a supportive, resource-rich environment.
Our resource room may occasionally be used for other activities such as workshops - in which case drop-in will take place by going to the reception desk and checking for drop-in availability with our staff.
Just come to S312 Ross and sign in. An instructor will check in with you to offer assistance, to guide you toward resources, or to facilitate consultation with others on similar issues or assignments.

DR. PETER CONSTANTINOU is a faculty member in the School of Public Policy and Administration. He has over 24 years of experience in teaching and has been experimenting with what he calls High Intensity Learning Experiences (HILEs). Traditional thinking about teaching and learning focuses on pedagogy and insight into learners, and some consideration has been given to the notion the experience that students have in the process of learning.
His experience and research shows that when students feel pressure in experiential education activities their performance improves. This August, he fulfilled a life-long dream to climb Africa’s highest mountain. From this expedition and his work with experiential education he concludes that without the possibility of failure there is little opportunity to learn and grow.
Speakers: Peter Constantinou
