Summary:For scholars interested in the intersection of writing and online instruction, Writing in Online Courses: How the Online Environment Shapes Writing and Practiceexamines both the theoretical and practical implications of writing in online courses. The essays in this collection reflect upon what the authors have learned about the synergistic way that writing helps to shape online instruction and how online instruction helps to shape the writing process. While many educators continue to question the reasons for teaching online, these essays demonstrate the useful ways in which it enhances and informs student writing and learning. From the vantage point of different disciplines, the authors examine how the writing process is revealed and changed when it is placed at the center of an online learning environment. These scholars and practitioners attest to the multiple ways that teaching online has enabled them to rethink how writing functions in their classes, allowing them to pursue educational goals and student outcomes that may have been more difficult or even impossible to pursue in the traditional classroom. Perfect for courses in:Writing and Emerging Technologies, English Online, Topics in Composition and Rhetoric, Approaches to Teaching Writing, Technology in the Classroom, Educational Technology for Teaching and Learning, Foundations of Distance Education, Composition Theory, Introduction to Rhetoric and Composition, Writing and the Teaching of Writing
