Dr. Amanda Golden
Co-sponsored by SWLF, OSU Libraries & Press Gray Family Chair
12:00-1:30 pm | Valley Library Autzen Classroom
This workshop will present strategies for teaching literature and writing using digital tools. It draws on Dr. Golden’s WOVEN (Written, Oral, Visual, Electronic, and Nonverbal) courses at the Georgia Institute of Technology in which students learn to formulate complex arguments across a range of modes and media. In courses such as OSU's 100-or 200-level bac core humanities, Global Digital Modernisms, Digital Woolf, African American Literature from the Harlem Renaissance to the Digital Present, and Victorian Technology and Art, students create digital projects—including interactive maps, applications (apps), e-books, podcasts, and videos—that interpret the language of texts and complement the reading experience without compromising it.
This workshop will address
o Using digital tools during class and in projects (including mapping, annotating texts, and visualizations).
o Multimodal projects and assignments.
o Scaffolding assignments in preparation for digital projects.
o Teaching close reading using digital tools.
o Student research in multimodal projects, including digital archives.
o Podcasts and video assignments.
