DH Kitchen: Going Multimodal: Why and How to Consider Nontraditional Writing Projects in Your Classroom
By Chelcie Rowell On September 18, 2015 · Leave a Comment · In DH Kitchen, Events
Podcasts, blogs, websites, Kickstarter video pitches and proposals, even T-shirts, shoes, and dance: all of these are ripe and potentially rewarding media for undergraduates to take ownership of their writing. Join us for a DH Kitchen on Friday, October 2, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. in Reynolda 301. Drawing on best practices in pedagogical literature and their teaching experiences, Writing Program teaching professors Jimmy Butts and Laura Giovanelli will outline why current research makes an argument for multimodal writing—anything that isn’t solely alphabetic text—and how to begin creating such assignments in your classrooms.
