Interactive & Multimedia Resources: Social Media

Introduction

The Walden University Writing Center is dedicated to helping students become better writers, and we understand the value of both traditional and evolving online communication for Walden students. Our social media pages are places for students to get Writing Center announcements, resources, and instruction; make meaningful connections with fellow writers; and engage in dialogue about writing with us and with peers.

Find Us on Social Media

Facebook (Walden University Writing Center) and Twitter (@WUWritingCenter): Here, we share writing suggestions, tips, humor, and motivation; Writing Center announcements, such as paper review appointment openings and upcoming webinars; links to our resources; and writing-related news. We also answer student questions via these channels.

Walden Writing Center Blog: Writing Center instructors and editors publish a new blog post each week tailored to Walden students. Posts range in topics from academic writing, APA style, and grammar to Writing Center news, technology tips, and “Spotlight” posts featuring Walden students and faculty members.

Podcast: WriteCast: A Casual Conversation for Serious Writers is a monthly podcast produced by the Writing Center about academic writing. Listeners can stream episodes from their computer, download the episodes, read the episode transcripts, or access the episodes on mobile devices and tablets through iTunes and other podcast apps. Access the podcast archive on our website’s podcast page.

Walden Capstone Writing Community: In this private online community exclusively for Walden students in the proposal and final states of the capstone process, students can post about their progress, network with other students, contribute to the community blog, add to the discussion forum, chat with Writing Center editors, and attend group meet-ups to address capstone-specific issues. For more information on joining the community, contact Lydia Lunning, coordinator for capstone resources, at lydia.lunning@waldenu.edu.

Social Media Policies

On our social media channels, we welcome comments and questions and we encourage discussion, which can mean differing opinions. Students are free to disagree with others' posts in a respectful manner. Though the tone of our social media pages is relaxed and informal, we reserve the right to remove any posts or comments if they are aggressive, inflammatory, or irrelevant.
