    CFP (Call for Papers): I’m looking for papers for the purpose of proposing a panel for the upcoming 2016 MLA in Austin, TX.  The subject is “Teaching Writing and Composition to Undergraduate Online Students”  I am particularly interested in (but not limited to) papers that explore the primacy of written language as instruction compared to oral, traditional, on-site lecture/discussion; ways that written discussion in online forums enhance rhetorical practices; and papers that answer questions, not limited to: Is there a correlation between time and effort expended in discussion forums and student outcomes?  Is an outstanding online student experience exclusive to the better-prepared student?  Is online study conducive to honors students in particular?  Are there benefits to supplementing written instructional material with web-conferencing, phone conferencing, and orally delivered assignment assessments?  In short, I’m interested in colleagues experiences, professional satisfaction, challenges, and recommendations in the growing field of distance education, particularly related to teaching English and Composition at the undergraduate level.

    Please submit a 250-word abstract to by March 15, 2015.
