Education Wunderkammer: On the Cultivation of Next-Generation Teachers and Learners in Writing and Composition Studies
Digital composition is an increasingly popular way to engage students, provide learning experiences, and allow for new avenues of creativity and rhetorical invention to be explored. The digital foregrounds invention, locates students in the remediation of ideas, and introduces new modes of reasoning, response, and civic engagement. Yet, despite field-wide recognition as to the value of digital composition, all things “digital” (from classroom practices to tenure and promotion) continue to be taught/treated in relation to the longstanding critical imperative. To this end, this panel will feature two collaborative presentations (each theoretical, pragmatic, and performative in nature) that bring together digital conditionalities and rhetorical invention as a framework for cultivation.
