Multimodal Assignment Design

During the week of September 21st – 25th, I will be presenting a 15 minute pre-recorded session titled “Designing, Scaffolding, and Evaluating Multimodal Assignments” at the 2020 Innovations in Teaching and Learning Conference hosted by the Stearns Center at George Mason University.

In connection with the video presentation, I have also created a PDF designed to aid in the development or redesign of an assignment to make it multimodal. The PDF also contains an example “project planning” worksheet that I use with students and a list of resources for creating accessible and ethical multimodal content.

Finally, I have linked to a few resources that I mention in the video in this blog post for your reference.

I hope this is helpful as you consider including multimodal work into your classes, and I welcome your questions and feedback on these materials!
