Classroom in Progress Brownbag
"Classroom in Progress" is a monthly brownbag series where graduate students, faculty members, and others interested in writing instruction come together in an informal environment to share ideas and concerns regarding classroom structures, assignments, activities, policies, and procedures.
The workshop addresses issues that immediately affect teachers and students in writing-intensive classrooms.

Diigo, Twitter, and Write or Die: Multimodal Composition for the Digital Age
Tuesday, September 18, 2012
Quinn Room, 114 Wheeler
Jane Hammons and Ryan Sloan, Facilitators
This is the first in a series of brown bags devoted to discussions of digital natives, digital literacy and digital pedagogy intended to elicit discussion from the whizzbang enthusiast and dedicated Luddite alike, not to induce a digital daze.
To get the ball rolling, Jane Hammons and Ryan Sloan will talk a little about some of the assignments they have given using Web 2.0 reading and writing apps and technology, why they’ve given them, what worked, what didn’t.
Here are some questions we think are worth pondering, but we’re mainly interested in your questions and ideas: What are some key technologies or applications that work well for beginners to digital pedagogy? What are some sample digital pedagogy assignments that have worked in the classroom? What are some key texts/sources for digital pedagogy? How much digital pedagogy do we need? When does digital pedagogy fail, and why?
All brownbag sessions will meet in the CWP Quinn Room in 114 Wheeler Hall. Participants are invited to join us when they can, for as long as they can. Brownbag topic and session schedules will be posted here as information becomes available.
