This 2-part workshop provides an overview of current research on multimodal composition and introduces faculty to a variety of easily-available multimedia applications and programs to use as the basis for multimedia assignments. Faculty from every discipline will benefit from this workshop.

Part 1: Setting the Stage

November 16th, 2016,  3:00-4:00 pm, Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation, 4th floor Holland and Terrell Library

Multimedia assignments ask students to create texts using more than words alone. By using still and moving images, voice recordings and music, even sound effects, students reap well-documented cognitive and affective benefits as they make choices about what to include and how to format the multimedia assets in meaningful ways.

This workshop, led by Rebecca Goodrich, Assistant Director of the Digital Technology and Culture program, reviews research on multimedia composing and demonstrates several easily available applications and programs that allow students to create multimedia projects. Discussion will include brainstorming ways to develop multimedia assignments for courses in many different disciplines. Participants will develop a multimedia assignment to share in Part-2 of this workshop.
