“Writing into Digication: First Year Writing Students Experiment
Moderated by Bill Torgerson
Come to this panel if you're interested in what might be done
with a Digication ePortfolio. Students have uploaded texts and
embedded images, sound, and video. One of the primary projects in
this class was to craft a hybrid research paper called the
Scholarly Personal Narrative in which students tell a personal
story and weave in research from scholarly journals. Students also
created short documentary films.
"Being Critical; Being Creative: Crafting Innovative Work in
Moderated by Tara Roeder
Our panel seeks to challenge the antiquated divide between the
"academic" and the "creative", exploring complex work that
transcends this limited binary.
