Writing Skills Centre Vision
To create a thriving, vibrant Red Deer Polytechnic writing community where students, staff, and instructors gather to discuss all aspects of academic writing.
Writing Skills Centre Mission
Using scaffolded instructional techniques and student-centred learning approaches, we strive to help Red Deer Polytechnic writers discover the knowledge and develop the skills they need to become confident, competent and independent writers.
All Red Deer Polytechnic students are welcome in the Writing Skills Centre. The Writing Skills Centre can help you with:
- Research and planning
- Essay organization and structure
- Developing a strong thesis statement
- Grammar and punctuation
- Any other issues related to writing
In order to become independent learners, students will acquire many types of skills throughout their post-secondary education. At the Writing Skills Centre, we help you develop the writing skills you need in both academic and professional settings. While we cannot proofread your paper, we can teach you how to proofread and edit your own work, skills that will stay with you for life.
Tutors are not permitted to discuss take home exams, resumes, or questions related to course content.
