LU Big Pic

Lamar University has a strong commitment to student and faculty engagement and teaching and learning excellence. Under the direction of the Office of Planning and Assessment, the Center for Teaching and Learning Enhancement (CTLE) supports faculty, administrators, graduate students, and staff in their academic pursuits and provides a range of instructional services to assist all members of the LU teaching community.

CTLE is expanding its mission! In addition to supporting innovative, effective teaching practices at Lamar, we will now offer a comprehensive suite of writing services to support your publication agenda.

Writing Wednesdays

Do you start every summer with great plans for finishing articles, book chapters, and grant proposals? Do you sometimes find yourself falling prey to the distractions of summer? Isolation and the lack of a formal schedule can disrupt the greatest of writing plans. Let CTLE help you accomplish your goals this summer by providing a dedicated time and space to concentrate on your writing and stay on track.

Starting Wednesday, May 17, and running through August 16, the open area of the 6th floor of the library will be reserved for faculty writers from 9 a.m. -12 p.m. and 1 p.m. - 4 p.m. each Wednesday during the summer. Bring your laptop or writing materials, a coffee mug, and a friend. CTLE will provide the coffee and the community, as well as optional services to support accountability and record keeping. For those wishing to contract the services of a professional editor, we can put you in touch with editors and provide a place for you to meet and work together. A private conference room will be available to reserve for groups that want to review and discuss writing.

Make this the summer of your professional dreams with Writing Wednesdays.

Stay tuned for more writing services coming soon from the Center for Teaching & Learning Enhancement.
