ABOUT THE BOOK In Online Education: Global Questions, Local Answers, 24 college educators focus on the most important questions to be addressed by all scholar-teachers and administrators committed to developing high-quality online education programs. We describe these questions as “global” because they transcend the particular situations of individual institutions. They are questions that everyone involved in online education needs to address: What are the issues to consider when first developing and then sustaining an online education program? How do we create interactive, pedagogically sound online courses and classroom communities? How should we monitor and assess the quality of online courses and programs? And how should recent developments and innovations in online education cause us to reexamine our roles and responsibilities as educators in technical communication? While these global questions affect all of us in one way or another, they demand different local answers, such as those presented by the contributors to this text. Readers will need to consider which of these local answers might apply to their own situations and how these answers might need to be adapted to reflect the particular needs of their own institutions.

The following is a public-facing thesis project. It includes three main components that function as a professional teaching portfolio and materials for future academic work. First, the course design article is a proposal for a first-year writing course at the University of Wyoming. The course emphasizes utilizing peer review to facilitate online learning communities. The course design article does not follow the conventions of a traditional article, rather it employs the genre conventions of a course design article and includes a course description, institutional context, theoretical rationale, critical reflection, and syllabus. Second, the community college application materials are useful to my future career aspirations and include a teaching philosophy, cover letter, and curriculum vitae. Third, the book review is an examination of Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch’s Virtual Peer Review: Teaching and Learning about Writing in Online Environments. While this project is separated into three distinct sections, each section is related in topic or purpose.

This reference identifies information resources concerning virtual reality and provides detailed instruction on how to use these resources in an effective research strategy. Most of the chapters overview particular types of information sources, such as periodical and citation indexes, conference proceedings, technical reports, dissertations, and monographs. The chapters explain how to use these tools to gather information about virtual reality, and discussions of key resources are always placed in the larger context of information-gathering strategies specific to the field. Most of the resources are available in large public and academic libraries. The volume does not presuppose sophisticated technical knowledge of libraries, and it is written for the student and general researcher. The volume concludes with a set of algorithms that can be used to locate resources in the most typical searches, and a list of producers and publishers of related material.

Collaborative writing has attracted much attention in the last 25 years, though it eludes clear definition. In its simplest sense, it is writing done by more than one person. But in a broader sense, even a work by one author involves collaboration: the author typically builds on the work of others, and the author's writing is generally revised in light of the comments of reviewers. This bibliography includes annotated entries for nearly 1000 articles and books on collaborative writing published between the early 1970s and 1997. The bibliography is divided into two broad parts on collaborative writing in academic and nonacademic settings. Within each part, entries are grouped in topical sections. Author and subject indexes allow easy access to the entries.
