“There’s a lot of work out there.”
This encouraging statement came from Scott Warnock, one of the panelists in the “Finding and Creating Online Teaching Opportunities–and Sustaining and Succeeding in Them” panel at the recent conference of the Association of Writers & Writing Programs (AWP). And Warnock knows what he is talking about: In addition to being the author of Teaching Writing Online and a member of the CCCC Committee for Best Practices in Online Writing Instruction, he is an associate professor of English and Director of the Freshman Writing Program at Drexel University, where he coordinates online and hybrid courses.
All of the panelists were excellent, and I will do my very best to provide a much more comprehensive write-up about that panel later in the week. Please stay tuned!
