How near and yet how far? Theorizing distance teaching

Computers and Composition Volume 18, Number 4, ISSN 8755-4615 Publisher: Elsevier Ltd


This article theoretically maps out the larger principles that we must consider when thinking about distance learning. I explore the ways in which students’ and teachers’ identities must shift in these new contexts. Pointing to the changes that will or could occur when we move writing courses online, I make the overarching argument that Composition Studies needs “a theorized preparation for shifts in pedagogy that distance courses make visible.”
