Blevins Presents on Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality at Watson Conference

Brenta Blevins, assistant professor of writing studies and digital studies​ in the Department of English, Linguistics, and Communication, presented a paper, “Preparing for Current and Future Composing with Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality,” at the Twelfth Biennial International Thomas R. Watson Conference on Rhetoric and Composition at the University of Louisville (October 25-27, 2018).

Her project explores Augmented, Mixed, and Virtual Reality and contends these media are not futuristic media, but are already in use now for a variety of purposes, ranging beyond games to include public rhetoric, marketing, and technical documentation. As such, instructors should incorporate these media into their classroom assignments to prepare students for composing now and in the future.
