On Tuesday we will have a guest speaker, Colin Lyons, who is a Grant Wood fellow this year at the University of Iowa. His artistic projects are a fascinating intersection between topics we have been talking about in the past few weeks: technology, creativity, and the development of a professional identity online. On Tuesday, he will talk with us about his work as well as invite your questions for further discussion.
Before class, visit Colin’s website at https://colinlyons.ca/ Bring two questions to class that you would like to ask him about his work and/or his website.
Also read Chapter 12 and the Afterword of Understanding Digital Literacies and read “Professional Writing and the Rise of the Amateur.”
If you prefer, instead of writing a typical blog post, you can instead post a quote, a question, or a comment about the readings.
