This workshop is the second of a Two-Part Workshop Series on Multiliteracies Pedagogy sponsored jointly by the University of Minnesota and University of Wisconsin-Madison. Part one is scheduled for Friday, February 19 at 2:00-3:30 pm CST/3:00-4:30 EST.
**This workshop is specifically designed for postsecondary language educators (i.e., University level). K-12 educators should not registered for this workshops.**
This workshop builds on the conceptual foundation established in Rethinking Interpretative Communication: A Multiliteracies Approach by allowing participants to apply their knowledge of multiliteracies pedagogy. Participants will work with existing text-based instructional materials to evaluate their effectiveness and to adapt them following multiliteracies principles. To facilitate this work, participants should identify one or two reading, listening, or viewing activities from their current textbook (or a text-based activity of their own creation) that they wish to refresh and retool during the workshop.
Objectives: Participants will be able to…
- define and discuss their understandings of multiliteracies concepts
- evaluate existing text-based instructional materials in relation to multiliteracies pedagogy
- adapt existing text-based instructional materials to reflect multiliteracies pedagogy
