The Writing & Media Lab is both a Writing Center and a Multimedia Lab


For Students: Make an Appointment in the Writing & Media Lab

Learn More About the Writing & Media Lab

The Writing & Media Lab (WML) is a resource shared by the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) and the Center for Academic Success (CAS). The WML is staffed by student Consultants who are trained to work with their peers to help improve their writing and multimodal communication skills.

Our consultation process is non-directive in nature, intended to allow students to maintain ownership of their work. We use the same pedagogical methods employed in writing centers across the country and apply it to supporting students in their multimedia projects, too.

In addition to help with the nuts and bolts of a project, we help students develop their ideas thoughtfully and critically, whether they are writing an essay or planning a video.

To schedule a class visit to the Writing & Media Lab, where we can describe our services and resources to your students, please contact Jean Schwab, the Writing & Media Lab Coordinator.

Faculty Support in the Writing & Media Lab

The Writing & Media Lab Coordinator also works directly with faculty to design multimedia projects, from initial assignment idea to developing milestones and timelines. We offer customized assignment support in the form of:

  • in-class workshops on different phases of a project, from brainstorming, planning (including scripting or storyboarding/outlining), or discussion of how to use multimedia to achieve desired rhetorical effects
  • customized handouts for your assignment
  • in-class workshops on multimedia software

In-class workshops are designed to be hands-on for the students and work best when tied directly to your assignment. Please contact Jean Schwab, the Writing & Media Lab Coordinator, to discuss a project and how the WML can support your students.
