Abstract

This special interest group (SIG) is for writing centers working with or thinking about working with students online as either a partial or fully online writing center (OWC). During its second year at IWCA, this SIG will be structured in two parts: First, we will report back on current and upcoming initiatives, including the OWC Community website, our on-going virtual conversation hours, a special issue of ROLE on OWCs, and our efforts make this SIG an IWCA standing group. Second, attendees will participate in small-group discussions on the benefits and challenges specific to OWCs, including ways OWC tutors and professionals can better connect.
