  • In what ways have individuals and full centers worked or struggled to build bridges, make connections, or form partnerships?
  • What practices or processes best support building bridges among individuals and groups?
  • In what ways have shifts caused by the pandemic allowed for building bridges and/or challenging clichés that were previously not considered?
  • In what ways have recent changes to local institutional policies/practices challenged clichés about peer tutoring in writing?
  • What clichés about writing centers still circulate? How can we move past them?
  • How might efforts to see writing centers as spaces to build bridges in fact perpetuate clichés about our research, theory, and practice?
  • Of course, proposals exploring other lines of inquiry are welcome. All are welcome to bridge out and challenge clichés.
