Talk with OLI Experts

Talk with one of our walk-in webinar hosts about your online teaching needs. Each host has particular areas of expertise, but also a lot of experience, so feel free to ask about any topic related to online literacy and writing instruction. To see each host's expertise, visit our Just-in-Time Contributor page. A list of upcoming hosts appears to the right.



We've discontinued the regular weekly sessions for now (April 11, 2020).

However, we're still available for consultations.

Just Ask: The demand for our regularly scheduled sessions has tapered off since March 2020, so they will be discontinued, and we'll refocus on our regular program development, which includes topic-based webinars, online learning resources, and other events and initiatives for members of the OLI/OWI community.

However, if you are interested in an ad hoc session for you or your group, we encourage you to request a session, as explained above.
