An Apology for Audio Assignments in First-Year Writing Classrooms

873 views

Published on

A pedagogy workshop facilitated by Harley Ferris & Ryan Trauman @ the University of Louisville, 11 April 2013.

In this workshop, we present an example assignment tailored specifically for First Year writing classes while discussing issues related to: the efficacy of audio assignments in first-year writing classrooms; how those assignments might be tailored to address specific course outcomes; how those assignments can be framed as highly rhetorical exercises; strategies for making the necessary resources available to students; possibilities for sharing/circulating/publishing audio assignments; and potential pitfalls for audio assignments in the writing classroom. And of course, we also spent some time at the end for Q&A.
