Another FaCTS Mellon Project


by Dr. Robin Runia

I. Description
Theme-Restructuring of English 1020: English Composition and Literature to be taught in an online format. The course will include both literature and social media components.

In this digital age, their writing should reflect an understanding of the unique rhetorical power of digital media.
b. Goals & Outcomes — Students will engage in extensive reading and writing about literature in a variety of online environments.

II. Impact on Curriculum, Instruction, and Faculty Development
a. Existing Course
i. In addition to literary content, this course will include strong focus on rhetorical capabilities of digital media
