Online Teaching Bootcamp

Online Teaching Boot Camp Offered by the Writing Program

The Writing Program is pleased to announce that we will be offering a special two-day workshop this semester on online teaching. We’d love to have you join us if you have any interest in teaching online or hybrid courses for the Writing Program. Your participation in the workshop will open up the possibility of being assigned an online/hybrid course at Ball State. For TAs in particular, the training will add another marketable credential to your CV.

Though the workshop will focus on teaching first-year writing, faculty who teach other courses are welcome to join us.

We will meet face-to-face on Saturday, April 19 from 12:30-5 and online on Saturday May 17th. You’ll hear advice on using Blackboard for peer review, communicating, generating learner engagement, creating audio lectures, and more.

Participants will receive a copy of Scott Warnock’s Teaching Writing Online: How and Why and lunch on the 19th. Please register by April 14th by emailing Melissa Hull (

The workshop is organized by Andrew Scott. Please feel free to email him with any questions (
