Multimedia Projects

« The Pedagogy Project

Multimedia projects are one of the undeniable hallmarks of digital pedagogy. Wired and wireless classrooms allow us to expand our teaching beyond the printed page to include a wide range of media(ted) methods and tools. The HASTAC community is actively engaged in conversations about innovative integration of interdisciplinary technologies and scholarship and this section demonstrates the breadth and variety of our engagement. In this section, we include projects that feature sound, music, video, photography, and other multimedia elements as components of contemporary teaching and research.

From Wenz’s assignment using a virtual planetarium to Hogan’s use of board games and Duclos’s adoption of Vines, this section proves media experimentation can expand not only media literacies but, through exploring topics through alternative platforms, media can also lend us greater understandings of a vast range of topics and disciplines. In addition to these, the section also contains several essays that combine media within a single assignment to illustrate the pedagogical power of mobilizing the digital for effective instruction. For instance, Gould teaches transmedia essays and Detweiler asks his students to complete a single assignment in both text and podcast forms.
