Location: Welles-Brown Room in Rush Rhees Library

Date: Thursday, April 6, 2017

Time: 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM

“Teaching Multimodal Assignments through an Editorial Pedagogy” 
This lecture provides an overview of theories that are useful for framing a curriculum or course in multimodal composition—or classes that use writing assignments more generally. Drawing on the New London Group’s multimodal pedagogies and elsewhere from rhetorical genre theory, Professor Ball will discuss a praxis-oriented approach to creating a writing-intensive course that highlights multimodal composition. Creating a classroom space where students author real-world assignments with real-world genre conventions and consequences, Professor Ball provides a model for teaching and assessing multimodal composition through an “editorial pedagogy,” which offers editorial-like
feedback from the instructor and sets up students to function as awesome peer reviewers of others’ work.
Please contact the Writing, Speaking, and Argument Program at to RSVP by 3/22.
