A Writing Specialist can be embedded into any Falcon Online course to assist students with writing, communication, and digital literacy. Having an embedded specialist provides easy and direct contact to the Writing Center's services. Writing Specialists work with faculty to create specialized content for classes.
We can work with you to provide the support that your students need to have a successful semester.
We understand that, as an instructor, it is difficult to be available to each and every student in your class. By embedding a specialist, you can encourage students to contact the specialist if/when they are struggling with an assignment or in the course in general. Once embedded in the course, the specialist can access assignment sheets, the course syllabus and other documents necessary to be aware of the expectations of the course.
