Integrated Reading and Writing (IRW) has become a useful option for Developmental Education courses. Building student digital identities through integrating digital literacies into IRW courses informed our instruction. Come hear how we examined the growth of students’ digital identities while enrolled in IRW courses and the pedagogy we used.

Our presentation will begin with an overview of our study, including the context, participants, and rationale. After discussing the use of hybrid texts (Lea & Jones, 2011) and multimodal meaning making (Cope & Kalantzis, 2009), we will show the steps to implementing our study and how it informed our instruction. After viewing a sample of data from participants, a whole group discussion about implementation will be facilitated. Following this discussion, session participants will be provided with our instructional lessons, materials, and strategies, as well as the opportunity to brainstorm other opportunities for building upon students’ digital literacies.
