“Grade Norming for Multimodal Projects.” So you are all excited about integrating more multimodal projects in your sections of Writing Arguments. What’s stopping you? Maybe consternation (or just a little insecurity) about assessment. Beth Lechleitner (whose own consternation makes her highly qualified) and Laura Thomas will facilitate this assessment norming session for wannabe multimodal pedagogues. Also welcome are CO300 instructors who already teach multimodal assignments and would like to share their wealth of experience or perhaps confirm, refine their approaches.
Dates: Early October, exact date TBA
“Audiences: Invoked/Addressed/Unintended.” Ed Lessor facilitates a discussion of audience in the social media era using the two Ede and Lunsford essays from the CO300 reader to ground a conversation about the complexities of teaching audience in multimodal compositional environments. Discussion will center on integrating these theoretical texts with CO300 coursework with a focus on practical classroom activities and assignments.
Dates: Monday, November 11 and Tuesday, November 12
Time: 4:30-5:30 p.m.
