DEVELOPING A WRITING CENTER AT BURAPHA UNIVERSITY : OTHERS
Writing centers are growing in popularity around the globe in all different contexts -- universities, colleges, secondary schools, and even in professional business settings. This session will provide information about how a writing center was established at Burapha University (BUU) in fall 2019. This is the first English writing center at a public university in Thailand. The presenters will discuss the basic principles of writing center work, and describe how they helped the Burapha Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences to establish, and train writing tutors for, the HU-SO English Writing Center.
