Classroom Visits

If you are a professor or TA and would like a classroom visit from our staff, please email the Writing Help Centre to make arrangements.

Visits are typically about ten minutes long and consist of the writing centre coordinator or tutor explaining the Writing Help services on campus and answering questions from students. Custom workshops can also be arranged.

Note: Tutors cannot edit or proofread (i.e., correct the grammar and punctuation) a student's paper. They can teach the student about writing, though, using their work as an example of areas of strength and weakness.  We cannot edit or proofread theses or dissertations. 

USask Writing Centre Policy on Generative AI

IMPORTANT NOTE: The information, tools, and compilations listed in this guide are not endorsed by the Writing Centre. Please read our policy and keep in mind the following:

1) It is essential to obtain permission from instructors, supervisors, prospective publishers or any other stakeholders before utilizing generative AI tools such as ChatGPT. This ensures that you preserve learning and use resources responsibly, ethically, and lawfully while respecting the privacy of individuals and upholding intellectual property rights, including Indigenous Knowledges.

2) Furthermore, before using any AI-powered tools, one should be aware of the ethical issues around generative artificial intelligence, including considerations around privacy, bias and discrimination, fabrications, environmental concerns, human labour, and academic integrity. These and other ethical concerns are outlined in plain language in a post by Leon Furze.
