ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

ENG2720 Writing with New Media, SP2016

In our “Writing with New Media” class, we will define what we mean by the term “new media,” learn a shared terminology for understanding new media, create deliverables with new media individually and collaboratively, and establish the foundation of your professional and technical writing online presence. More specifically, you will: • Experiment with new media communication technologies and articulate how they relate to traditional media technologies; • Develop literacies for reading, evaluating, and creating new media communications; • Collaborate and share your new media compositions within a supportive community of compositionists; • Build heuristics to enable your dynamic transition to learning new media technologies as they emerge, and • Integrate the composition process into your new media creation practices (drafting, revising, and reflection).
