  • Feature Story | Western Libraries
    fall quarter 2015 recording at least 7 500 visits over 10 times higher than the number of visits received by the Writing Center at its former site These numbers are all the more impressive given early concerns that students would not be able to find the new Research Writing Studio after the Writing Center and Research Consultation merged services and re located to Haggard Hall last spring After nearly 30 years with the Writing Center I thought I would get misty eyed about leaving my Writing Center identity behind But no such thing At no time in my history here have I seen students this engaged forming community taking charge of the space and their learning explained Roberta Kjesrud the studio s director of writing Fully staffed by a mix of both professional and student staff members who offer expertise to support the student research and writing experience there are typically between one and four research and writing Studio Assistants available at any given time during the hours the Studio is open Involving student studio staff in the teaching and learning process also has its own benefits One of the great things about having student staff as Studio Assistants is the unique perspective they bring They know what it s like to take the courses and complete the types of assignments that we often see represented in the Studio and they ve struggled with the same academic and personal challenges that students using the Studio face explained Kelly Helms the Studio s assistant director of writing They also know what strategies and feedback are most helpful to students and this peer based teaching and learning environment builds a community of scholars that would not possible without our dedicated student staff Centrally located on the second floor of Haggard Hall in a very bright and open space the inviting atmosphere of the Studio offers students a dedicated place for writing and for obtaining research and writing assistance Students are encouraged to collaborate with each other with Studio staff or to work on their own The studio is designed to support students at all levels and across all disciplines The research and writing process is almost always intertwined said Gabe Gossett Head of Research Consultation and part of the studio leadership team Where at one moment a researcher is trying to make sense of the ideas they are trying to explore in writing at another moment a writer is looking for sources that speak to the topic they want to write about The studio approach offers as needed support to build towards learning outcomes that will ultimately leave students better able to take charge of their own inquiry process with on hand support to make it possible The Studio s immediate and extraordinary reception by students faculty and university administrators makes abundantly clear the importance and value of this project and Western Libraries is pleased to share the exciting news that the final phase of the Research Writing Studio project has been fully funded thanks to the tremendous generosity of donors Cindy Don and Adam Hacherl Cindy Hacherl is an alumna of Western and a graduate of the English Department with long standing connections to Western Together the Hacherls are passionately committed to making the vision of the Research Writing Studio a reality and they recognize the benefit of this project for both current and future students Not only did the Hacherls make possible the creation of a collaborative workshop space in Haggard Hall 222 and the Studio s current transformation but their ongoing generosity mean that the full vision of the Studio project can be completed This last phase will expand the Studio toward the building s entryway increasing both its visibility and capacity New furniture access to electricity and technology glass and acoustical accents and clear signage will also contribute to the completion of this expanded area Additionally just as the Libraries face unprecedented demand for collaborative and individual work spaces so too have they received increased requests for class workshops Students using the Studio on their own regularly request that their professor schedule a formal workshop and professors who do routinely encourage new students to connect with the Studio staff for follow up work Since individual work and workshops are mutually reinforcing there is a clear need for a second workshop and group instruction space Plans call for creating an inviting glass enclosed teaching space with moveable tables and chairs and an instructor s station with A V equipment Having this additional space will better equip the Studio staff to help meet the needs of students engaging in research and writing work University faculty have repeatedly identified the development of student research and writing skills as an important role of the Libraries Integrating the practices of research and writing is one way Western Libraries and the Learning Commons are working together to address this identified need and it is through the generosity of the Hacherl family that the Research Writing Studio will continue to grow in strength and ability to
