Session Description

Multimodal writing is composition other than the traditional page text and may include digital media. Examples of multimodal writing include authoring electronic posters, PowerPoint presentations, blogs, wikis, videos, animations, websites, cartoons, pamphlets, electronic portfolios, and educational materials. The craft of multimodal writing is a skill cultivated in K-12 and higher education courses, so that learners can apply in society after graduation. These real world skills are critical for application in 2016 and beyond. Opportunities to develop multimodal writing skills are easily designed into online, hybrid, and face-to-face courses. Multimodal writing is one method that educators can use to provide writing across the curriculum in general education courses and major courses as well as at all age levels. The presenters share strategies that faculty can use to incorporate multimodal writing in courses, sources of free “favorite picks” multimodal software, and address standards for multimodal writing in this “outside the box” presentation.
