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 2: Multimedia Assignment Sharing Session

November 30th, 2016,  3:00-4:30,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.

Participants are asked to bring an assignment they have developed for use in a course they teach or plan to teach. Please prepare an example of a multimedia project that a student would be expected to create using one of the multimedia apps demonstrated in Part 1 of the workshop. Participants will share their projects with other faculty.
