D-WRD Winter Quarter Meetings: 1st and 3rd Fridays, 10:00 a.m. – Noon

Please note that we have 143 McGaw scheduled from 10:00 a.m.-noon on our meeting days, but usually finish our meetings by 11:00 or 11:15 a.m.. This allows some extra time for hands-on consulting and collaborating on programs that you want to learn more about and to get some practice — for example, Digication, Photoshop, iMovie, and other programs that support technology-mediated pedagogies.

In the WQ, we’ll combine the two working groups that already had substantial overlap: the Digication digital portfolio working group and the D-WRD working group. If you’d like to add agenda items for upcoming meetings, send them to Michael:

Friday, January 7th: Digication workshop

  • Background: AQ Preliminary Report; discussion led by Scott Johnson
  • What is reflection?

Friday, January 21st: Digication Workshop

Friday, February 4th: Multimodal Composing

  • Background: “Thinking About Multimodality”; discussion led by Tricia Hermes

Friday, February 18th: Reading, Responding to, and Grading Digital Portfolios

Friday, March 4th: Student Digication Roundtable — come hear about their experiences!

Friday, March 11th: Debrief and plan agendas for next quarter? 9:00 a.m. before the department meeting?
