Your writing center could be preparing for an online tutoring experience in the next academic year.
On August 11th 2020 at 4-5PM (GMT), the Middle East-North Africa Writing Centers Alliance (MENAWCA) will hold another COVID-19 discussion to talk about Asynchronous and Synchronous Sessions.
MENAWCA President Ryan McDonald describes these sessions as such: “Synchronous sessions can include any tutoring that is happening ‘live’ – which could be anything from a video or audio session to a tutor and tutee working simultaneously on a Google Doc. Asynchronous sessions generally see a paper submission with feedback returning to the student within a set time period (generally 24 hours). Both methods have their own challenges and potential.” (R. McDonald, personal communication, August 3, 2020).
