In 2011, the former CCCC Online Writing Instruction Committee surveyed the field as part of its charge to identify and examine best practices in online writing instruction. Based on the findings from the survey, the committee wrote an Initial Report of the Committee for Best Practice in Online Writing Instruction (OWI): The State of the Art of OWI 2011. In 2021, a decade later, the current CCCC Online Writing Instruction Standing Group sought to update the report by replicating the survey, documenting successes and challenges, and identifying areas where more research is needed. This updated report aims to complement and extend the original findings, serving as a 10-year snapshot of online teaching and learning for the Writing Studies field.
