Cracking the Codes of College: Language Choice in Composition and Conversation

Instructors: Lauren Mallet and Arielle McKee

Coding is a concept many Purdue students associate with engineering and related sciences. This workshop will explore the codes of writing in college—how to recognize, crack, use and master the language of your assignments, instructors and classmates. Each morning will feature in-depth, instructor-led practice using video clips, audio clips and articles as examples. We will hold optional Office Hours each afternoon for planning, writing, revising and editing your own work. Each participant should bring a laptop, current assignment prompt and draft.

Graduate Students

Scholarly Writing for International Graduate Students

Instructors: Michelle Campbell and Ji-young Shin

This short course will be focused on global and sentence-level concerns for scholarly writing at the graduate level to help students transform previous research into a conference paper or first draft of a scholarly journal article. Students are required to bring previous/current research and a laptop. No textbook is required.

Proofreading Practice

New this semester! The Writing Lab will offer a weekly session specifically for working with grammar and sentence structure in your papers. You will learn techniques for proofreading your future documents at the same time that you work on correcting sentence-level errors in your current paper.
Open every Friday from 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm in the Writing Lab. Individual session lengths will vary based on the length of the document and the number of tutors available each week. You must bring a paper copy of your document to work with. This is a drop-in service and is first-come first-served.
