Call for Participation
To complete the project, I need assistance from 3-5 students currently (autumn 2013) undertaking an introductory module of MSc in Digital Education at the University of Edinburgh (IDEL - Introduction to Digital Environments). As part of the module assessment, the students have the choice to design a multimodal assignment. I would like to accompany the volunteers through the process, documenting the steps taken to accomplish the task and the decisions made on the way, decisions about the visual and textual aspects of the assignment and how they link with each other to achieve the final effect. To gain some insight into the design process, I would like to ask questions at crucial moments of the journey. This is likely to facilitate reflection on the process, which might deepen the engagement with the task at hand. Once the assignment is submitted, I would like the participants to take me on a virtual tour round it and talk me through it.
If you are an IDEL student thinking of creating a multimodal assignment at the end of the course and you think you'd be interested in participating in this study, there is some more information in the PDF file at the bottom of this page. You can also get in touch with me, using the contact form, if you have any other questions. Let's start a dialogue about multimodality.
I look forward to hearing from you.
digital compositions weave words and context and images: they are exercises in ordered complexity – and complex in some different ways than print precisely because they include more kinds of threads
