Multimodal Texts: Dipping into the Online Waters with Student Writing in First-Year Composition

Date / Time: 
March 2, 2016 12:30pm to 2:00pm
114 Wheeler Hall

Michael Larkin and Ryan Sloan, presenters

The presenters will talk about the multi-modal assignments they’ve given to composition students in College Writing R1A, and they’ll share some of the students’ work, which was done “in public”:  the students reflected on their own writing processes and also wrote short essays employing audio and visual materials and hypertext integrated with their own writing, presenting their pieces online for audiences that potentially could extend beyond the teacher.

This is an event in the R&C Colloquium Series.
