Scott Warnock: Best Practices for Online Writing Instruction

We’re thrilled to announce that Professor Scott Warnock from Drexel University in Philadelphia will offer a workshop on Friday, May 15th, from 10:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.,  in SAC 300: “Best Practices for Online Writing Instruction”:

  • Efficient and generative uses of discussion forums in both Online and Face-to-Face classes
  • Managing workload and labor issues
  • Current thinking in Writing Studies related to Online Writing Instruction

Professor Warnock is the author of Teaching Writing Online: How and Why (NCTE, 2009), a foundational text for our initial DOTS cohort, subsequent D-WRD workshops, and many hallway conversations. He is Co-Chair of NCTE’s Committee for Effective Practices in Online Writing Instruction — and he maintains the popular blog, Online Writing Teacher.

Professor Warnock’s background in Composition, Technical Writing, and Writing Studies ensures a productive and timely session for anyone teaching with technology — either face-to-face or online. There is time built into the agenda for that most important component of technology workshops: conversation.

And treats will be provided by the department. 

If you plan to attend, please RSVP to Michael Moore — —  by Thursday, April 30th. 

Hope to see you there!
