    from WCENTER, a discussion for administrators of University Writing Centers
    Carl Glover begins the thread by explaining that he feels "kairos" (the term, not the journal!) is an important concept as it relates to writing center tutoring.

    Sharon Wright extends the discussion, using her experiences to identify one hindrance to tutors' learning kairos.
