“Teachers and administrators, to include those in writing centers, typically are simply migrating traditional face-to-face writing pedagogies to the online setting—both fully online and hybrid. Theory and practice specific to OWI has yet to be fully developed and engaged in postsecondary online settings across the United States” (7).4Cs Committee on Best Practices in Online Writing Instruction http://www.ncte.org/cccc/committees/owi
