Abstract

Higher education institutions increasingly expect students to work effectively and critically with multiple modes, semiotic resources, and digital tools. However, assessment practices are often insufficient to capture how the complex, collaborative nature of multimodal artefacts represents disciplinary knowledge. Drawing on theories and practices related multimodality, mobility, and place, this study offers insight into the design and assessment of students’ digitally mediated work. © ISLS.
