Dear writing centre colleagues,

Please share widely

We are inviting you to complete a brief survey<> that will help us capture our community’s responses to the occurrence of digital writing projects (blogs, presentations, wikis, podcasts, videos, etc.) across higher education. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes of your time.

Research in the US suggests that despite the increasing regularity of digital assignments across higher education, students reserve writing centre visits for traditional academic writing projects. We are wondering how similar the Canadian scene is, and whether the policies, programming, and pedagogy of Canadian centres have been modified or are shifting in response to the rise of digital writing projects across the curriculum.

Information from this survey will be used as part of our monograph project, “Bring a hard copy to your appointment”: Tooled-up, networked, multimodal writing at the Writing Centre. Your contributions will remain anonymous, with institutions and centres being described in general terms. Your agreement to participate is voluntary can be retracted at any time.

The survey does not collect personally identifying information, though any personally-identifying information you may supply in open questions will be de-identified and held in confidence.

For more information about the survey, get in touch with us ([log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>, [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>).
