To all the students doing the Intro to Digital Environments
Hope you’re enjoying the course:-) As you might already know the final IDEL assignment might be submitted in alternative formats, e.g. as a video essay or a hypertext. If you are thinking of designing a multimodal assignment, perhaps you would like to contribute to my dissertation project? My intention is to examine the processes and practices of designing a multimodal assignment (the working title is: Multimodality – Destruction or Deconstruction of Academic Discourse? Students’ Perspective).
I’m looking for 3 – 5 volunteers who would like to engage with the task on a deeper level by means of reflection on designing process (this means answering a few emails with prompt questions while composing the assignment). At a later stage, after submitting, I will ask you to take me on a virtual tour ’round your assignment space’.
If you’d like to know more about the project (and participate in it), please get in touch. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org (some preliminary info can be already found on the project website: http://towardmultimodality.weebly.com – work in progress though).
I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
