  • Collaborative learning is a valuable mode of learning that relies upon effective communication and adaptability
  • Writing facilitates learning and community, so context, audience, and genre matter
  • All writers–emerging to advanced–can benefit from sharing their writing with careful, supportive readers
  • Writing center work is professional academic work
