dc.description.abstract"Developing a Multimodal Pedagogy" explores the adaptation process of multimodal strategies into pedagogical practice. This research attempts to examine the relationship between multimodal assignments and creativity, and then use that relationship first as a model for revising a multimodal assignment to better meet the needs of students within the composition classroom. The research next investigates the effects of embracing multimodality and creativity as a pedagogical practice that influences both large-scale course design and minute day-to-day pedagogical choices. The research concludes that multimodal and creative practices are necessary elements within the post-secondary classroom and that an acceptance of these practices will lead students to develop more significant and transferable skills and become more engaged in the classroom.
