Presentation Description

This presentation examines “Eloquentia,” an immersive writing project integrated into the college writing curriculum at Westmoreland County Community College (WCCC). Linked to David A. Kolb’s experiential learning theory, this project transcended the boundaries of the writing classroom by engaging students with writing, revising, editing, and design processes in the creation of a professional publication. Learn how these projects immersive writing projects bridge the classroom with the real world and can assist students in the development of multimodal writing skills that will benefit them long after the end of the semester.
