The National Conference on Peer Tutoring in Writing (NCPTW) is a conference with a history of reaching out. This year’s conference at Hofstra University was committed to extending NCPTW’s legacy by reaching peer tutors and writing center administrators from across the country. This years NCPTW brought together tutors through their shared interest in teaching, research, and administration.
FIU had seven of our Center for Excellence in Writing tutors who presented on a variety of topics including multilingual writing centers, professional development of tutors, mentoring, and strategies to use with challenging tutoring sessions. We are so pleased to announce that five of our presenters also received scholarships because of their work; Sarah Medina, Sophia Younes, Alexander Dieguez, Tricia Foster and Janie Raghunandan.
