Reconceptualizing classroom-based research in computers and composition

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


In this article, Webb maps out three dominant forms of research that have been undertaken in the field of computers and composition-theoretical, case studies, and limited quantitative. She then identifies a fourth mode that has begun to appear-a multimodal approach. Arguing for ways in which this method could help us answer research questions that have been previously unanswerable by other research methods, she calls for the field to reconsider incorporating this multimodal approach more within our research studies.
