UH West Oʻahu No‘eau Center Director Dr. Emily Nye recently addressed The Conference on College Composition and Communication (CCCC) at the 2011 CCCC Annual Convention in Atlanta, Georgia. During the session “OWL Tales: Ongoing Scholarship and Stories from the Online Writing Lab,” Nye discussed online tutoring at UH West O‘ahu.
She presented as part of a panel featuring five other writing center directors from around the country with the common goals of using technology to provide better access to tutoring and creating an effective online tutoring program. Nye spoke about the UH West O‘ahu No‘eau Center’s use of the Elluminate software program that allows tutors and students to have virtual meetings and share a computer screen from different locations.
Each year the CCCC Convention draws college faculty members from around the world. They gather to hear award-winning keynote speakers, attend presentations by colleagues on the latest innovations in education, and network to gain knowledge of best practices in the field.
