The Online Writing Instruction Community (www.owicommunity.org) would like to invite you to a series of three OWI Community Conversations. These conversation hours will follow up on our August 2020 and September 2020 OWI Symposiums.

One of the feedback points we got from our post-symposium survey was that attendees would like a chance to talk with the speakers and ask questions. So with that in mind, we’ve invited some of our symposium speakers to join us for conversation hours.

We will be holding three separate conversation hours over the next few months (dates/times below). Attendance is free. These conversation hours will be hosted virtually in Zoom. Please click here to register for any or all of the sessions: https://forms.gle/E6M5Er2xCMSBFD9NA

The speakers at each OWI Community Conversation hour will not be preparing anything for the conversations. Instead, these will be open conversation hours where you can come and ask questions about their talks and/or other things related to online writing instruction.

Please come prepared to engage in conversation and ask questions!

We look forward to chatting with you in the coming months! Questions?: theowicommunity@gmail.com
