Archive of Kent State University Digital Composition Workshops, Fall 2011

This is an archival blog post of a previously posted page on dynamicsubspace.net. I am glad to have had the experience of teaching graduate students and faculty about using technology in the composition classroom, because these instructional/reflective workshops inform the teaching that I am now doing as a Brittain Fellow at Georgia Tech. The original page is included below.

For Fall 2011, I am the Office of Digital Composition Coordinator at Kent State University, Department of English. As part of this assignment, I provide assistance to instructors and faculty in the use of digital technology in their writing classes and I facilitate workshops on specific digital writing technologies.

During fall semester, I offered workshops on the following three topics:

  • Using the Vista8 Blackboard Content Management System [pre-semester workshop, notes]
  • Blogging in the Classroom and Profession [see poster above, notes]
  • Multimodal Assignments and Assessment [see poster above, notes]

I am developing two more workshops that will be led by Professor Derek Van Ittersum during spring semester while I am completing my dissertation on a Pringle Fellowship:

  • Social Media and the Writing Class [read on Google Docs here]
  • Writing Collaboration Using Online Writing Tools [read on Google Docs here]
