Digital Writing Portfolio

Your final project for this course will be a portfolio that showcases two or more digital texts that you have thoughtfully developed within the conventions of digital writing while reflecting critically on these texts using readings in our class as well as in the field of digital rhetoric. Your portfolio should be created in HTML/CSS code, and you should include a homepage with an avatar/logo that you created in Photoshop and links to your digital texts and your Critical Reflection.

First, you might spend some time defining digital writing based on the texts we've read and discussions we've had in class. Then, work toward explaining how your two texts fit within that definition.

Your final critical reflection should then:

Rough draft due November 17th for Workshop

Final Portfolio and presentations due December 8th at 7pm

We will meet on December 8th at 7pm for brief and informal presentations. In general, this is an opportunity for us to meet one last time and celebrate the end of the semester. You will be limited to 10 minutes or less to showcase some of your digital texts and briefly explain how these texts help you theorize and define digital writing.
