Virtual Conversation Hours provide a space to share experiences, ideas, strategies, and questions about online writing centers (OWCs). All participants are welcome, regardless of previous experience with OWCs. Each Virtual Conversation Hour focuses on a specific topic, but participants can bring all questions, ideas, and comments to the discussion.
Virtual Conversation Hours are held in Zoom. After registering, you will receive a unique Zoom link via email. Please save this link in order to enter the Zoom meeting on the date of the event. Participants can contribute through audio and/or chat. Sharing your video is not expected. We post summary notes in our Blog after each discussion for anyone who can’t attend live.
We are looking for facilitators for Spring 2020. If interested, please apply to be a facilitator by December 31, 2019.
