Digital WRD

The Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & Discourse—like the academic field of writing studies itself—both is wrapped up with digital technologies as we teach and learn.  Follow the links below to explore aspects of WRD’s digital identity.


Online Courses
Meet some of WRD’s writing faculty and learn about how online courses encourage creative collaboration between students and instructors as well as multimodal learning. 

Digital Writing Portfolios
Digital Writing Portfolios are a cornerstone of WRD’s pedagogy. Creating and maintaining such portfolios causes students to actively archive their writing and reflect on how they have met course learning outcomes as well as their personal learning goals. 

Laptop Classes
Laptop-required courses are designed to foster greater interactivity between students, their instructors, and their writing. Learn more about how today’s wireless capabilities offer news ways in which students are immersed in digital literacy while becoming actively engaged in writing.
