WritingwithMachines in Fall 2017
curry mitchell

The WritingwithMachines group is looking forward to the fall semester. This blog is about to become enriched once again as we begin our pedagogy-based course on teaching composition with technology, the second course offered in our Certification Sequence. This semester, our “brown-bag” discussions will move to an online forum. We’ll miss the snacks, but we’ll likely enjoy the more flexible and accessible forum Zoom affords. If you are interested in participating in exchanges that explore the intersections of writing, reading, technology, and pedagogy, we hope you will join us for one or many of these discussions.

WritingwithMachine’s Fall Certification Sequence

The Fall Certification Sequence will begin September 11th. Faculty who participate will complete 5-units over the course 10-weeks, covering topics such as:

  • the benefits and limitations of digital feedback and assessments
  • how issues of accessibility and universal design are linked to concepts of rhetoric and composition
  • how to create collaborative assignments using networked technologies

We hope many of our colleagues who completed the Spring Certification Course will continue to edify our discussions this fall, and for anyone interested in joining us now, more information about how to prepare for the Sequence will be forthcoming. In the meantime, please scroll down and explore this blog, or contact curry mitchell at cmitchell@miracosta.edu for more information.

WritingwithMachine’s Fall Meeting Schedule

The WritingwithMachines group will host 3 open-discussion meetings in the fall on 9/21, 10/19, and 11/16 from 7:00 to 8:00 pm in Zoom. Participation is FLEX eligible. Stay for the whole hour or drop in for a bit. Enjoy rich inquiries with colleagues regarding reading, writing, technology, and pedagogy. Oh, and Canvas…we’ll probably talk about Canvas too.

Contact curry (cmitchell@miracosta.edu) if you’re interested, or check back on this blog to find the url to join the discussion. Hope to see you there!!
