Open audiences #thoughtvectors #vcuagora

What is the difference between writing for an academic audience and writing for an open audience? Is it possible to write academically for open audiences, or openly for academic audiences? What would be required to translate a scholarly essay so that it maximizes the affordances of the internet in making its argument? One thing I […]

Source Fellowships for #thoughtvectors

All right, time to take stock. Take a look at your sources. A long look. This is what you have, and you may not have much time to find other ones. Luckily, unless you completely reject all of the basic premises of this course, you know that we have emphasized processes that will allow you […]

Webby #thoughtvectors

My hybrid class and I had a free-range conversation on Wednesday about what webbiness might be: how we can tell something which is net-native from something which was spawned in some word processing document and then retroactively gussied up with multimodal elements (like this post, actually). My first premise is that my students are a […]

Kay/Goldberg nugget #thoughtvectors

Breaking usual custom, I have two nuggets. Every message is, in one sense or another, a simulation of some idea. It may be representational or abstract. The essence of a medium is very much dependent on the way messages are embedded, changed, and viewed. Although digital computers were originally designed to do arithmetic computation, the ability to […]

Down the Rabbit Hole #thoughtvectors

So at this point, if you’re one of my students or just one of the millions of casual lookers-on and passers-by on the interwebz, you’re wondering when #thoughtvectors is going to start transitioning into the research-process stage of this research-writing course. In fact, you may be downright afeared that you are somehow behind by five […]

Curated #thoughtvectors

Periodically I will write Alice in Wonderland posts surveying my students’ projects. You can tell by the featured images. I think the thing to stress is that these are not a grade, or the only times I look at student blogs. They do constitute valuable formative feedback, hopefully, and a one-stop-shop for any cMOOC students looking for kindred […]

Phase 2 of #thoughtvectors: Idling in Uncertainty

by

confused-alice.gif
I admit myself intrigued and possessed of a mild trepidation as we approach the next phase of Living the Dreams, which we have artfully entitled “Phase Two.” After seven weeks of new media readings and one of dodging bikes during the UCI cycling dealie, we now turn our attention to… what? Newer new media readings? […]
