An Award Winning Service
This year WriteAway was awarded the Merit Award for Program or Service by the British Columbia Library Association (BCLA). This award recognizes outstanding achievement during the preceding year in a new or an on-going service.
WriteAway is a great example of cross-departmental collaboration. Combining the work of post-secondary libraries and writing/learning centres across BC, WriteAway augments institutions' own learning centres by providing an additional support point for students who struggle with writing. As an online service available 24/7, WriteAway ensures that students who are unable to reach a campus learning centre can quickly and easily receive feedback on a draft writing assignment by a qualified WriteAway tutor.
Congratulations to WriteAway, and many thanks to the BC eTutoring Concept Committee and WriteAway Advisory Committee, institutional coordinators, tutors, and service partners BCcampus and BC ELN. WriteAway is a success thanks to the highly collaborative spirit all parties bring to the service!
