ENG1101 D380 College Composition I, FA2015

City Tech’s ENG 1101, English Composition I course prepares you for the kinds of communication, research, and literacies that you will develop and use throughout your academic and professional careers. You might ask, “How does it do this?” Fundamentally, it develops your understanding, application, and critical awareness of these two concepts: 1) Communication is rhetorical, and 2) Communication is multimodal, or WOVEN (written, oral, visual, electronic, and nonverbal). This course introduces these concepts to you through lectures, activities, and projects. You will build on what you learn now in all of your other coursework and your professional life. Each ENG 1101 class is unique, because while each one has the same basic outcomes, each is taught by an instructor with his or her own research and pedagogical approach. In our class, we will use the interdisciplinary field of the neurosciences as a way to focus our conversations and projects. Of course, communication is about the transference of information via the senses and processed by each audience member’s brain. In addition, the brain and its embodied perception systems define how we are most receptive to receiving communications, thinking about communications, and being persuaded by communications. Furthermore, digital communication and computing technologies are essential to communication, which you need to master. However, we will study how to use these tools with a critical eye toward the effect of these technologies on the way we think and communicate with one another.

LIB2205/ARCH2205 LEARNING PLACES: UNDERSTANDING THE CITY

This special topics course offers an interdisciplinary approach to investigating our built environment using a case study focused on a specific place each semester. This course combines physical examination with information research and data collection using methodologies developed in multiple disciplines. Students from a variety of departments engage in on-site exploration and in-depth research of a location in New York City. Faculty from Hospitality Management and Social Sciences will be teaching the course this semester and will thus focus the course material through the lens of psychological/social science and hospitality and tourism.
