  • ENG-314-001

    In this writing course, you will explore ways in which writing practices are changing in light of emerging digital technologies and their online and networked environments. Recognizing that the act of writing can no longer be confined to the production of printed words alone, you will engage in the analysis and production of digital multimodal texts that blend alphabetic, visual, and aural components for online audiences. You will learn key rhetorical concepts (e.g., argument, arrangement, appeals, audience, context, delivery, invention) which can guide both the reading and writing of digital multimodal texts for specific online audiences. Due to the digital nature of this course, you will be required to experiment with various emerging Web 2.0 technologies and digital design software and will be held in a laptop classroom. You should have access to an up-to-date personal computer (preferably a laptop). This course also includes an applied learning project where you will collaboratively produce a multimodal text for the Burgwin-Wright House as the capstone project for the course. We will explore the process of developing a large multimodal text by focusing each project around a particular rhetorical mode and the world of museum texts.
