OWI Open Resource

Welcome to the Online Writing Instruction Open Resource – the OWI OR. The site is organized around the overarching categories that the OWI Committee used to structure its 2013 Position Statement of Principles and Example Effective Practices for Online Writing Instruction. In addition to the principles themselves, this site provides examples of how each principle might be applied in real teaching and learning situations.

You’ll find links throughout to the OWI Open Resource discussion board. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to communicate with colleagues about great online teaching and learning and that the OWI Open Resource will support your work as a writing teacher.
