R203. Mix It Up: Teaching Hybrid Forms

Room 606, Washington State Convention Center, Level 6
Thursday, February 27, 2014
1:30 pm to 2:45 pm


This panel will address the structures and parameters of teaching hybrid forms using various creative writing genres and other artistic disciplines such as film, visual art, music, and new media. Panelists will present approaches used in courses in a range of contexts (undergrad and grad, low-res, noncredit, online, etc). Subjects will include using teaching prompts across media, creating multi-disciplinary salons in the classroom, and reconceiving with students notions of both genre and medium.
