Abstract

In this massively collaborative essay, we write about the Digital Media and Composition (DMAC) Summer Institute at OSU. We discuss its affordances for professional development through its ability to offer diverse perspectives, experiences, lessons, tools, and resources. As a group essay we find it difficult to settle on any one characteristic that best represents what DMAC affords concerning professional development and scholarly methods. DMAC’s values are skills, knowledges, and capacities that work together to form a complex exchange of professional possibilities. It is a complex endeavour. With this complexity in mind, our article explores the culture of DMAC as a circulating culture of diversity. Our multivocal essay traces keywords that we associate with DMAC and its capacities for professional development. Our keywords include access, assemblage, assets, community, conversations, intensity, novice, and participation.
