Dr. Randy Nichols To Conduct Pop Culture Workshop At Conference
Dr. Randy D. Nichols, Chair of Limestone College’s Department of Communication and Interdisciplinary Studies, will conduct a workshop at the National Conference of the Popular Culture Association on Friday, March 30, in Indianapolis.
The presentation, entitled “VR as Meta-Medium Workshop: A Collaborative Compositional 3D Project,” explores how students discover rules and grammars, develop new media literacies, and negotiate collaborative composition by working together in a virtual reality compositional space.
“The brave new digital world of communications doesn’t care how you used to do it,” Nichols said. “It demands that you invent new communication practices for the ever-changing communications landscape.”
Nichols is a longtime member of the Communication and Digital Culture Area of the Popular Culture Association, and has contributed to conferences and publications for the National Council of Teachers of English, the Association for Teachers of Technical Writing, and the Conference on College Composition and Communication.
Nichols teaches Digital Literacies, Critical Thinking and Narratives Across Media at Limestone. He shares several of his resources with educators and communicators on his website at RhetoricSoup.com.
