    Hiring Graduate Writing Consultants

    November 21, 2022

    The Drexel Writing Center (DWC) is currently hiring graduate students for the Graduate Writing Consultant (GWC) position.
    GWCs provide one-to-one writing consultation to their fellow graduate students. This conversation between writer and reader is collaborative, tailored to meet the writer’s specific goals, and develop their writing skills. GWCs provide support throughout all the stages of the writing process from brainstorming to final draft.
    Candidates undergo training and ongoing professional development in addition to their tutoring hours. Part of that training focuses on antiracist writing pedagogies and inclusive practices. Prior experience tutoring is preferred, but not necessary. We offer competitive pay and flexible hours.

  • Impact Factor Podcast with Katie Van Aken, PhD

    Impact Factor Podcast Live November 17

    November 01, 2022

    Join us for a special live recording of the Impact Factor podcast hosted by Drexel alumna, Katie Van Aken, PhD '17!

    Dumb it up!
    Have you ever tried to explain your PhD research to your grandparents? Have you ever had to convince a person or entity to fund your very specific research? Getting your PhD involves often presenting and sharing your work to other experts in your field. But the bigger challenge is learning how to explain a technical research topic to someone who hasn't studied it for years. Let's talk about how grad school can and should prepare students to communicate technical topics to a general audience.

    Thursday, November 17th
    6 to 7 p.m. ET

    Papadakis Integrated Science Building (PISB)
    Room 104, First Floor
    Drexel University
    3245 Chestnut Street
    Philadelphia, PA 19104

    And, be sure to join us for an after party with the panelists!
