This 50-minute panel presentation explores the experiences of 3 EdD students and 1 faculty member who meet for a weekly online writing group. The panel will consider promises and challenges of distance education at the doctoral level and the role virtual institutional support services (e.g., writing groups, writing centers, and library consultations) play in motivating and helping writers complete their projects. Panelists will offer advice to attendees on best practices for virtually accessing institutional support services and maintaining an online writing group.
