Busy grading and working on the new edition of Teach. Write. slated for publication on April 1, but been thinking a great deal about optimal number of students in online writing intensive classes. Below is a link to an article by Wayne D’Orio, an award-winning education journalist, writing for Inside Higher Education.
“Online class sizes: one size does not fit all.”
My favorite comment: “All sources for this story agreed that writing intensive courses demand fewer students.”
BTW—online literature courses are writing intensive if taught correctly.
