    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: To help students occupy the space of the author, instructors can mirror the complex web of agents involved in the production of any text by using the social context of the classroom. Danica Savonick takes the practice of collective authorship in her “Introduction to Narrative” assignment and flips the script proposed by the commonplacing assignment discussed earlier. Students are asked to produce a collective text and as such, approach authorship as composed of multiple approaches and consciousnesses where each individual must find a place within a constructed whole. Focusing attention on media selection will sharpen students’ awareness of how formal choices shape the reception of content and requiring multiple types of media will encourage comparison among and between media and imagined purposes. This assignment will help bring the formal production elements of authorship into contact with the message (McLuhan).
