Best Practices for Online Writing Instruction - 2-Day Online Course

August 18th, 1:00-2:30PM EST and August 19th, 1:00-2:30PM EST

CWPA is pleased to offer a workshop focused on best practices for online writing instruction. Jessie Borgman and Casey McArdle will be drawing from their book Personal, Accessible, Responsive, Strategic: Resources and Strategies for Online Writing Instructors to help WPAs develop plans to keep the quality of their writing programs high if they are asked to shift to online delivery.

From the book’s description: “Drawing on their novel PARS framework, Jessie Borgman and Casey McArdle explore the complexities and anxieties associated with online writing instruction. PARS offers an innovative way to support your own online instructional efforts as well as those of faculty members in programs that offer online writing instruction. Borgman and McArdle offer extensive examples of how to create assignments, syllabi, and accessible, productive learning spaces. Drawing on work in the design of user experiences, they explore how we can design online writing courses with our students' experiences in mind. Borgman and McArdle encourage us to plan online writing courses strategically, and they reinforce the importance of iterating our course design and teaching practices continually with the goal of creating a better user experience for everyone involved with the course.”

The book is available through the WAC Clearinghouse here: https://wac.colostate.edu/books/practice/pars/
