What is First-Year Symposium?'

First-Year Symposium is a public forum for composition students to present their research in a collaborative, multimodal format that incorporates speaking, alphabetic text, video, and/or images. This event gives students the opportunity to join the academic community as fellow researchers and bona fide participants in the scholarly conversations of university life. In addition to presenting at the Symposium, you will also participate as an audience member by enjoying and evaluating the works of other presenters.

For this project, you will work collaboratively in small groups to present your research and ideas from the research you are conducting on discourse communities, using a multimodal medium to a live audience!!!
