Sustained Development: Creating Customized OWI Instructor Training Programs Which are Built to Last

The 2013 Position Statement of Principles and Example Effective Practices for Online Writing Instruction (OWI) helpfully lays out principles to guide faculty training and development; these principles are presented as “baseline requirements” for effective OWI instruction, but may not be entirely feasible or sustainable for many financially or resource-strapped institutions.  Based on research from the workshop leader, participants will be presented with several institutional models of training and development -- models which vary widely in terms of funding, intensity, and administrative commitment and support.  Through discussion, small group, and individual work, participants will develop ideas for a sustainable instructor training and development program within the context of their own university’s budget, resources, and administrative support structure.
