Lab Introduction

Digital Composition Studio

The English Digital Composition Studio is located in the Administration/Humanities Building (ADM), room 103Q. (view Campus Map)

The Digital Composition Studio (DCS) is an interactive multimodal composing studio located in the heart of the University of Alaska Anchorage's Department of English. The Digital Composition Studio was developed by the Department of English to serve students in the invention, composition, and revision of multimodal texts directly associated with course curricula. It is not an open computer lab. The DCS is a collaborative space. To make an appointment at the DCS, either call (907) 786-4324 or email thedcs@alaska.edu. You can also visit our website and request a session online at https://alaska.digication.com/DCSUAA/Request_Session_Time. When you come to the DCS with a multimodal project, our tutors will help you to learn, navigate, and use relevant technologies in order to create a rhetorically effective and successful text. There are a number of ways DCS tutors can help students as they invent, compose, and revise multimodal texts. DCS tutors can consult with students and assist them in the development of a design plan, help students identify applications that are appropriate for their skill level, provide technological support for students as they compose, provide feedback during revision, and much much more.
