Stylized green and purple 'G' with "Global Society of Online Literacy Educators" in purple.


The Global Society of Online Literacy Educators (GSOLE) is an international organization connecting those who teach reading, alphabetic writing, and multimodal composition as digital literacies in online educational settings. Dedicated to diversity, inclusivity, and access in literacy-based online education, GSOLE disseminates peer-reviewed research and information through its annual meeting, online conference, research support, educational and community-building webinars, website, and two open-access online journals, Research in Online Literacy Education (ROLE) and the Online Literacy Open Resource (OLOR), as well as planned online literacy certification programs.

As an organization, GSOLE recognizes that online literacy instruction (OLI) in reading, alphabetic writing, and multimodal composition is taught in traditional and digital settings, engaging teachers and scholars of reading and composing across a range of disciplines. This document is intended for OLI educators, including both teachers and tutors, their program administrators, and other stakeholders. The purpose of these principles is to establish a set of shared values related to the development of sound instruction.
