The Writing Specialists would be happy to schedule a visit to your online class or send a brief video about our services. We can provide the following services:

  • A 15-20 minute presentation on AATC services (Note: This can be for any class with a CRN)

  • A customized workshop tailored to your class developed in consultation with you (Note: For a customized workshop, we need the request at least 4 weeks in advance)

  • A generalized workshop on a writing topic (e.g., how to avoid plagiarism, thesis writing, or grammar) developed in consultation with you

Due to high demand for visits and workshops, we will only be able to do in-class virtual workshops for classes outside of the field of composition.

Please contact Kevin Sitz (kwsitz@ucdavis.edu) for more information.
