Multimodality in Higher Education theorizes writing practices and pedagogy
from a multimodal perspective. It looks at the theoretical and methodological
uptake of multimodal approaches in a range of domains in Higher Education,
including art and design, architecture, composition studies, science,
management accounting and engineering. Changes in the communication landscape
have engendered an increasing recognition of the different semiotic dimensions
of representation. Student assignments require increasingly complex multimodal
competencies and Higher Education needs to be equipped to students with these
texts. Multimodality in Higher Education explores the changing communication
landscapes in Higher Education in terms of spaces and texts, as well as new
processes of production and creativity in the new media.
