Writing in digital environments (WIDE)

Researchers at WIDE (writing in digital environments) at Michigan State University are exploring ways to make collaborative writing easier. Their research agenda focuses on three questions:
  1. What are the processes for digital composing?
  2. What are the best practices of digital composing?
  3. How do we enable the capacity for communities and organizations to write in digital environments?
Their research projects include the intriguing "Re-imagining what workflow representations are and what they do for knowledge workers."

Thanks to my friend Michael Diramio (project manager for the Food System Economic Partnership) for bringing WIDE to my attention over the holidays.
