So Larry Jacobs and I got to meet again. My colleague and CCCC Best Practices in Online Writing Instruction Committee co-chair Beth Hewett were interviewed last month by Larry on Higher Education Talk Radio about the committee's recently published "A Position Statement of Principles and Example Effective Practices for Online Writing Instruction (OWI)." Again, the statement can be found here: http://www.ncte.org/cccc/resources/positions/owiprinciples
(I describe it a bit in my last post).
Larry helps us think about the goals of the Statement, its descriptive nature, similarities and differences between teaching writing online and onsite, and some of the advantages for students of OWI.
If you want to listen to an archived version, check it out here.
