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
Monday, May 11th - Friday, May 15th, 2020
For Graduate Students
Are you finding it a challenge to start a writing project? Or finish one? Are you working on a paper for publication or perhaps you’re contemplating a chapter of your dissertation, thesis, or book? Whatever the situation, we thought that you might like a few days dedicated to writing in a supportive environment. The concept we will be using has worked well during the past 11 years here at Dalhousie. Writers have consistently reported they find the week to be an effective “push” to getting the writing completed.
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. We’ll meet daily at a location TBD.
Space to Write: Students go off to write in their own spaces – often in their offices or common areas or even coffee shops. (Hint: The libraries and learning commons are almost empty at that time of year.)
Optional Sessions: If students will benefit, Writing Centre staff will offer lunchtime writing sessions or individual consultations
Opportunity for Coaching: 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 Janice MacDonald Eddington at email@example.com 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.
