November 19th, 2010 | Michael Moore
I’m Michael Moore — I teach at DePaul University here in Chicago — and am looking forward to meeting everyone tomorrow.
My agenda for attending is entirely self-serving: I’m newish to Chicago, and I want to meet people in the area who are working in the areas of pedagogy, the humanities, and digital technology. Based on previous introductions, I’m going to the right place.
I coordinate my department’s — Writing, Rhetoric, and Discourse — pedagogy and technology support and workshops; we’ve been focusing lately on digital portfolios, a long-term interest of mine, learning management systems (LMS) and multimodal composing. I want to explore possibilities in digital access to visual arts, and — as someone else has already mentioned — revising WordPress themes and templates.
See you in the a.m.!
