Many of our students will graduate to careers that involve writing for and communicating with online audiences. This panel will present classroom activities and pedagogical projects that help students learn to shape their writing towards a wider audience than the instructor or classroom setting. Maria Hernandez-Ojeda will present her classroom project in which students write blog posts about what they learned after researching the Lincoln Brigade in the NYU Tamiment Library Archives. Jack Kenigsberg will offer examples from his students’ blog posts and how he assesses web writing projects. Julie Hecht will share science writing resources and classroom examples–both for professionals and students–that support writing for the web activities.
