Jessie Borgman Shares the Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award

Jessie Borgman, an instructor in the Writers’ Studio at Arizona State University and an adjunct instructor at Lake Michigan College in Benton Harbor, Michigan, has been selected to receive the 2020 Computers and Composition Distinguished Book Award.

Borgman is being honored for the book Personal, Accessible, Responsive, Strategic: Resources and Strategies for Online Writing Instructors (CSU Open Press, 2019). She will share the award with co-author Casey McArdle, the director of undergraduate programs in the department of writing, rhetoric, and American cultures at Michigan State University.

The book explores the complexities and anxieties associated with online writing instruction, offering an innovative way to support online instructional efforts by providing many examples of how to create assignments, syllabi, and accessible, productive learning spaces. Together, McArdle and Borgman created The Online Writing Instruction Community, a website and social media group dedicated to collecting and sharing online writing instruction resources.

Borgman’s research interests include online writing instruction, instructional design, eLearning, genre studies, two-year colleges, and writing program administration.

Borgman is a graduate of Indiana University, where she double-majored in English and history. She holds a master’s degree in English from Western Michigan University and is a Ph.D. candidate in technical communication and rhetoric at Texas Tech University.
