Description

In this course, students analyze and apply rhetorical principles in their writing with digital media. A variety of topics and innovations in pedagogy are hallmarks of this course. Why pay attention to multimedia in a writing course? As members of a media-saturated culture, we know that print text is only one form of "writing" and communication, and sometimes it is not the most effective choice. Because all of us make sense of texts and issues in a variety of ways, this course will ask students to utilize multimodal (visual, aural, kinetic, etc.) forms of communication and become more informed and critical consumers of digital media writing themselves.

Course Requirements:

Regular attendance, class participation, online discussion, participation in drafting and peer review, and some form of self-reflective writing.

Intended Audience:

Undergraduates who want to learn to make multi-media more effective rhetorically. Digital Studies Minors.

Class Format:

Pedagogical approaches will vary according to the instructor or topic, but may include laboratory sessions, multimedia presentations, electronic and in-class workshops and demonstrations, full-class and small-group discussions, and gallery presentations.
