ENG 101: Writing about Travel

Check out the course website for ENG 101!

In the spring of 2016, I participated in Emory’s Domain of One’s Own Initiative. This program fosters digital literacy by helping students build their own websites and curate their own multimedia portfolios. I designed a first year writing course with major digital assignments prompting students think critically about travel. Assignments like an Instagram photo essay and digital travel collage used social media to help students participate in conversations beyond the classroom while giving them opportunities for multimodal composition. Students reported that this class helped them learn about “writing in different modes, especially digital ones” and encouraged them to “develop new perspectives about the world.”
