Hi everyone!


I'm an instructional designer at Emerson College and am working with faculty to create an online MFA in Creative Writing. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas or experience in conducting online writing workshops. In the face to face version of this program, students and the professor will read a student's work and come to class ready to discuss. I'd love to keep this asynchronous and have suggested tools such as Google Docs/Canvas Collaborations and Discussions, but faculty feel like there is an energy with the face to face courses that is lost. Are there Apps that I should be considering? Or a way to structure an asynchronous assignment that should be considered? I'm open to any ideas or suggestions.
