Example Effective Practices for OWI Principle 6

OWI Principle 6: Alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI models should be subject to the same principles of pedagogical soundness, teacher/designer preparation, and oversight detailed in this document.

Effective Practice 6.1: The WPA should have final approval of alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI models integrated into the online curriculum.

Effective Practice 6.2: The WPA should select OWI-trained teachers for alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI courses.

Effective Practice 6.3: Teachers of alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI courses should receive the same training, and they should be offered the same professional development as other OWI faculty.

Effective Practice 6.4: The alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI course itself should be observed on a regular basis and judged for the content and quality markers determined by the WPA or unit.

Effective Practice 6.5: Alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI course teachers should be evaluated/assessed by a peer or supervisor who has similar training and equal or superior abilities/experience in writing instruction generally and OWI particularly.

Effective Practice 6.6: Alternative, self-paced, or experimental OWI course teacher assessment should be engaged as rigorously as—and not more rigorously than—it would be in a similar traditional onsite course.
