Coming Soon: A new look for our same great content!

We're working hard this summer on a redesign of the Purdue OWL. Worry not! Our navigation menu and content will remain largely the same.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistants

UTAs are Purdue undergraduate students who work exclusively with students enrolled in English 106 and 108. They are also responsible for developing workshops and materials for the Writing Lab.

UTAs are undergraduate students from any major

You don't have to be an English major to work in the writing lab. In fact, most of the UTAs are majoring in areas in other departments around campus.

To be UTAs, students must successfully complete English 390A, a course which focuses on the theories and practices behind writing tutorials. Several students from each section of 390A are chosen to work in the lab as UTAs.

UTA responsibilites include tutoring, workshops, and research

UTAs are responsible for tutoring undergraduates who are taking English 106 or 108. They work with students on projects ranging from traditional essays to non-traditional visual assignments like web sites or PowerPoint presentations.

UTAs also develop and present in-class workshops to be delivered to introductory composition classes. One of the most popular workshops addresses peer review, and the UTAs model a constructive peer review session for the class.

Finally, UTAs research issues that arise from their experience working in the lab. This year, the UTAs conducted empirical research to establish a satellite writing lab in Meredith Hall on Wednesday evenings.
