The Online Writing Conference: A Guide for Teachers and Tutors, is exactly the book that I-and others-have been waiting for. Beth Hewett manages in this brief volume to answer a carload of my questions and alleviate an equal number of my fears.

Composition is going digital. The number of online writing courses in colleges across the country is increasing each year. How do we best teach writing over the Internet? How must our pedagogy change? Beth Hewett provides real and practical answers.

After years of online teaching and tutoring, Hewett shares her trade secrets and best practices. Grounded in current theory and research, her approach centers on building relationships, solving problems, and working efficiently. The book's problem-centered instruction uses mini-lessons and clear directions so that teachers and tutors can guide students toward improved writing.

Hewett covers a range of core issues, including:

  • building trust
  • assessing students' needs
  • creating effective mini-lessons
  • crafting helpful instructional messages
  • formatting comments and modeling key strategies
  • using time wisely.

The Online Writing Conference also provides a wealth of:

  • actual one-to-one examples of online conferencing
  • tutorial transcripts
  • action plans for teachers and tutors.

Whether new or experienced, whether a teacher, tutor, writing program administrator, or writing center director, you will want this book at your side when your computer screen becomes your classroom.
