Grounded in writing and rhetoric pedagogies at The Ohio University (MA) and The University of Louisville (PhD), my training has helped me develop a curriculum in the Department of Communication at Marian University:
ENG/COM 367: WRITING & NEW MEDIA
In this practicum, we explore new media composing through a genre approach, acquainting ourselves w: Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Audition, and Premiere, as well as Audacity and iMovie. We also discuss multimodal communication on a theoretical level.
COM 225: STRATEGIC WRITING
Students in this course survey written communication genres found in industries like public relations, journalism, marketing, advertising, and business and professional writing. We also think critically about grammars of technical writing and of cultural rhetorics.
COM 190: NEW MEDIA AND DIGITAL CULTURE
This intro class asks that we define nm, locate their historical emergence, and recognize their cultural impact; practice visual communication and new media composing (layout, video, audio); and analyze new media with rhetorical theory.
