Session 4: Saturday 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Location: 
Bond Hall 105

Presenters/Papers:

  1. Rebekah Edwards, Mills College
    This paper shares my experiences and some strategies developed while teaching my first E-lit course. I will share what worked particularly well, and where I encountered challenges. The presentation concludes with a series of critical and theoretical questions about E-lit and pedagogy which I hope will generate a larger conversation.  
  2. Kathryn A. Broyles, American Military University
    This presentation focuses on online learning, multimodal composing, particularly regarding veterans and what they can contribute to humanities, literary theory and composition course instruction - and what we can do, as scholars and fellow actors on the world stage— to support their success. The opportunity for institutional continuity online courses offer opens up a surprising rhetorical space enabling an extension and reconstitution of real world identity despite the virtual platform.
  3. Luisa Canuto, University of British Columbia (Canada)
    More than a means of documenting, sharing and evaluating students' knowledge and cultural literacy, the implementation of eportfolio in our intermediate-to-advanced language classes has proven a tool to promote independence of learning in our students and connectedness with their future career goals. Used as capstone project, the ePortfolio allowed students to reflect on and measure their overall progress in learning Italian as a foreign language.
