Brown Bag, Wed, 10/08: Don’t Wait, Remediate!

Unbelievably, the second Writing Program Brown Bag session of the fall semester is already upon us! This coming Wednesday, October 8, at 11:15 am, Michael McCamley, Janel Atlas and Caitlin Larracey will lead us in a roundtable discussion of “remediation” assignments for the writing classroom.

In contrast to its historical meaning in education, “remediation” is a term that has been taken up in recent years by compositionists interested in how, in our increasingly digital age, writing and rhetoric translates across media (that is, how it can be “re-mediated”) to new genres, audiences, and purposes. Our panelists will share remediation assignments they have used successfully in their own English 110 classrooms, and invite you to bring any questions or ideas you may have for bringing this kind of work into your teaching.

As usual, we will hold our Brown Bag session in the Memorial 3rd floor lounge, and snacks and beverages will be provided. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to email Kiley Dhatt (kileynd@udel.edu) or Jane Wessel (jwessel@udel.edu).

We very much hope to see you there!
