For Tuesday, Week 15

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 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.
