Digital Writing, Rhetoric & Discourse Rotating Header Image

Looking ahead to 2016-17

  • A session on PechaKucha — 20 slides, 20 seconds each
  • Using student progress features in D2L 
  • Typographic principles of design applied to slideware 
  • Identifying rhetorical purposes in multimodal composing projects 
  • Using Qualtrics, a powerful survey software, for which DePaul has a site license, with Joe Filkins, from DePaul’s Enrollment Management and Marketing
  • Tools that support student peer review — we’ve done this one a couple of times, but there are always new platforms and methods to explore, so we should re-visit it once in a while
  • Composing and editing video (ditto!) 
  • In class, real-time polling software
  • Using social media in writing courses: opportunities and challenges, and there are plenty of both
  • Your ideas: is there a software program you’d like to learn? A teaching-with-technology method or issue you’d like to read about or practice? Email me, pretty please, and we’ll add it to the agenda.
