Digital Composition and Rhetoric: Fall 2017

Digital Composition and Rhetoric: Fall 2017

This course is designed to assist students in further developing the writing, reading, and critical thinking practices needed to participate in various academic and professional communities. The course will focus on an inquiry into what writing is and, in the process of that inquiry, we will consider the uses and applications of reading and writing in a digital age. The course is not only structured around an inquiry into various issues related to writing and reading, but, through that inquiry, asks students to develop their understanding of–and comfort with–the writing process, explore their unique relationships to writing and language, and consider how writing relates to critical thinking. The overall goal of the course is to better enable students to structure and complete written work in future courses, as well as to use writing as a means of expression and problem-solving in various academic, creative, personal, and professional projects. There will be a strong emphasis on writing, close textual analysis, and research methods.

Brain on the Page-Fall 2017

Brain on the Page-Fall 2017

This combined ENG92W and ENG 1101 course aims to simplify the process of translating ideas and thoughts from your brain to the page. Through critical readings, analysis of visual materials, research, and self-exploration, you will gain basic writing tools and gain confidence in recognizing your unique ideas and develop methods to convey them. This class is a First Year Learning Community. (Header Image: “Brain Page 368” by Sue Clark; taken from “The Home and School Reference Work, Volume I” 1917. Public Domain/Flickr Creative Commons.)

This First Year Learning Community includes CST 1100 (Intro to Computer Systems), CST 1102 (Problem Solving with Computer Programming), and ENG 1101 (English Composition I), and is designed to leverage all three courses to produce an Interactive Fiction game prototype and a Game Design Document. It’s all about story-telling — characters, their world, and their interactions with that world in a non-linear narrative of our own creation.
