|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.
