ENGL328: Writing, Style, and Technology
In this course, we will explore the ways in which the concepts of "style" and "technology" interact with each other and affect writing in a variety of different contexts: traditional essays, writing inventions, and short videos. Along the way, you will keep a blog and you will learn a lot about various "Web 2.0" technologies. As an online course, students are required to have regular computer and internet access.
ENGL354: Critical Digital Literacies
English 354 counts as a Restricted Elective for any of the Written Communication major tracks, it counts for the writing minor, and for many other English specializations. While employers still definitely want good writers in the "old school" sense, today more and more digital writing and communication technologies are hot tickets that can be the difference that sets you above comparable job candidates. Indeed, writing work today is often hard to separate from technology and new digital tools: writers design mixed media projects, work with graphics and video, and whole new job categories are arising like being a company's "social media strategist," just to name a few ways digital literacy is valuable on the job today.
