We provide support for digital composing through presentations, workshops, and individual consulting services.
Digital technology has transformed the landscapes of academic
and professional communication. Technological advances have
given us the ability to go beyond print text to incorporate
multiple modalities from powerful photographs, convincing
illustrations, graphs that tell the stories of our data, and much
more. Today’s most powerful communicators are
able to make the most of these modalities in the compositions of
their arguments, reports and messages.
Therefore, the CEW is pleased to announce the opening of a satellite space inside the Silverman Library (Capen 128) devoted to promoting and supporting the development of digital composing skills among UB students, faculty and staff.
