By composing analytically, creatively, and reflectively in multiple modes, genres, and media, students learn to express themselves and to demonstrate their learning in both traditional and innovative ways. As a result, students are prepared for the various and flexible composing situations of further academic work and their careers, where adaptation to the expectations of ever-changing technologies are essential. Student examples using Blackboard, multimodal and multimedia communication, and electronic portfolios will emphasize visual and verbal communication that supports both communication and content learning throughout the disciplines.
