Forthcoming Edited Collection! Submit your chapter idea today!
We invite chapters for our upcoming edited collection, with the WAC Clearinghouse. Our hope is that the chapters in this volume will be an extension of our co-authored text but will allow for more voices that highlight their application of the PARS approach to online writing instruction. We imagine these pieces to be extensions of the application-based vignettes from our book, “Drive for Show, Putt for Dough!” and “For the Hole in One!”.
These short and practical “how tos” offered readers quick and easy things that they could try in their online writing courses that would make a big impact on the student and faculty user experience. With this edited collection we want to offer more of these practical “how tos” that come from a myriad of voices (your voices) in the sub-field of online writing instruction.
With our website, we wish to confirm that teaching online is different than just teaching online or teaching in a face-to-face setting. Our site aims to raise awareness of the multitude of research and resources available to online instructors and more specifically, online writing instructors; to advertise books, sites, and tools that could help new and existing online instructors with the facilitation of their courses.
When we created this website in 2015 our goal was to create an online, academic resource that provides a sense of community for online writing instructors around the globe and that encourages the use of recent online writing instruction (OWI) scholarship, the sharing of assignments, feedback, and course design ideas. We feel we've done just that!
