Academic Integrity Module
The Writing Centre Academic Integrity Module is completed online with registration needed. You can self-register from the Writing Centre website, but you may find it easier to have somebody register you. One additional follow-up session after completing the Module is recommended. Please contact Janice MacDonald Eddington if you have questions about registering for either the Module or the follow-up session.
Writing Week at Dalhousie
June 8th-12th, 2020 ONLINE
For Graduate Students
Are you finding it challenging to start or finish a writing project for your graduate work? Join us for Writing Week for Graduate Students – online this year. Writers have reported they find the Writing Centre’s Writing Week to be an effective “push” to getting their writing completed. Writers show up online at 9:00 (AT) each day to discuss writing and issues that inhibit their writing. They plan their writing for the day and spend the day writing. At 4:00 (AT), writers give a one-minute progress report and hear about other students' efforts to succeed. Through this process, you will gain confidence and the time to complete your writing project.
How it works: Writers show up each day at 9:00 and discuss writing and issues that inhibit their writing. They plan their writing day and go off to write. Then they meet briefly at the end of the day at 4:00 to give a one-minute progress report and hear about other students' successes. The process builds confidence. Students start to think that completion of their writing projects is achievable.
Writing Schedule: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday 9-4 and Friday 9-12.
Space to Write: Students go off to write in their own spaces.
Optional Sessions: If students will benefit, Writing Centre staff will offer lunchtime Brightspace Collaborate writing sessions or individual consultations
Opportunity for Coaching: Online appointments with Writing Centre faculty and advisors are available during the week and after the week, as well.This is NOT a week of instruction in writing (e.g., grammar and punctuation), though.
Register by writing to Kala Hirtle at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.

At peak periods of demand the Writing Centre stays open later in the evening for drop-ins. Students are welcome to come for brief consultations once or several times during the evening.
Our November 2017, 2018, and 2019 drop-ins were part of the International Write-ins under the International Writing Center Association. Dalhousie was the only Canadian university that took part.
Look here for updates on our Drop-in sessions.
