A professor who expands the meaning of expository writing was the guest on a recent “MTSU On the Record” radio program.
You can listen to their conversation via the Soundcloud link above.
The program continues its celebration of the five-year anniversary of MT Engage, the university’s latest Quality Enhancement Plan to get students actively involved in their studies through technology, hands-on activities and other techniques.
Knox teaches two MT Engage courses, “Introduction to Literature” and “Expository Writing.” In the latter course, students write learning-experience essays about how they feel about themselves as writers, among other types of writing.
“It focuses primarily on writing that comes from personal experience and primary research,” Knox said.
The final assignment is to create an ePortfolio, an online compendium of their work which includes writing, images and video.
“They have it for their full academic tenure at MTSU, and they even have access to it for a number of years … after they graduate,” Knox said.
