I just put in my book orders for the Fall semester, a little late I know, but in this field, one is always dealing with fresh material, so there is much to consider. In any case, I also generally supplement my readings with online material. Next semester, I’m teaching two classes and supervising our internships (which technically is also a class). I’m teaching Writing in Cyberspace, which is a professional writing course that introduces students to convergent media and networked composition in both theoretical and practical terms. I’m also teaching FYC in a first-year learning community called Digital Living. I’ll be dealing with similar issues there, but I’ll be working with my colleagues who will be teaching video production and digital photography. As such I think I can develop a single reading list and draw on material for both for my course.
So here’s my list as it grows. Suggestions welcome.
