Introduction to Multimodality:
Composing in the Classroom

This presentation—and interactive workshop—provides a foundation for understanding core concepts associated with multimodal/digital composition, for teachers and students at any grade level. The presentation guides the beginner through key concepts, the function of multimodality as part of the composition/writing process, provides sample assignments (low- and high-risk), suggestions for planning and scaffolding assignments, point-based rubrics for assessment, and a brief overview of free, web-based programs for in-class projects or homeworks. Educators will retain access to a copy of the presentation, along with all sample assignments for future use. The presentation concludes with a Q&A session.

Professional Development Workshop | April 2017
Multi-Purpose: Multimodal Planning, Platforms, and Assessing the Product

This interactive workshop explored the planning--and scaffolding--of multimodal assignments for courses in First-Year Writing and the PPW minor. In addition to assignment planning--and walk through--faculty were introduced to new (and free) online multimodal platforms to use with corresponding assignments. We reviewed point-based rubrics for assessment. The workshop concluded with three students presenting their multimodal final drafts from First-Year Writing through the PPW minor. These students also participated in a Q&A panel to answer audience questions. Workshop takeaways included: a copy of the multimodal presentation, with accompanying links to assignments, online programs, sample student assignments, and sample point-based rubrics.

Multimodality + Writing: Integrating Digital + Video Composition in the Classroom

This workshop provided faculty with the opportunity to engage with ideas about integrating multimodal composition as well as video composition (co-presented with Jen DeGregorio, Hunter College) into the classroom. These media-based concepts and tools are beneficial for any pedagogical level and can be adapted to existing as well as new assignments.

Multimodality in the Classroom

This workshop, co-presented with Maria Montaperto, and Henry Margenau, MSU, introduced the concept and practices of multimodal composition into the college classroom.

Low-risk multimodal homework assignment, and sample rubric, included.
