CCR 711 Final Day: Making in the Writing Classroom

  1. 1. Makers in the Writing Classroom CCR 711 ::: 12/5/13 Thursday, December 12, 13
  2. 2. What’s the takeway for our own contexts? Thursday, December 12, 13
  3. 3. Jana: What does it mean to make with materials/objects (digital or not)? Not as hobby, but earnest practice, invention, awareness (mindfulness, or maybe materialness), curiosity, potential. Thursday, December 12, 13
  4. 4. Jana: What I value from it is potential – potential in people viewing themselves as designers/inventors/tinkerers, in curiosity, in attention to materials, in agency (human and nonhuman), in how we conceptualize tools, and in envisioning spaces of opportunity. While my interest as a scholar and teacher is not so much on the emphasis of manufacturing and entrepreneurship, I find value in imagining possibility, and at a different scale, adopting this (maybe my students aren’t making robots that can execute oratory hand gestures of classical rhetors but Twitter bots that re-mediate rhetorical tropes and composition commonplaces we discuss in class).
