Welcome to TECHStyle, an online forum for digital pedagogy and research by the Brittain Fellows at Georgia Tech.
Who are we?
The Marion L. Brittain Post-Doctoral Fellows teach first-year composition and technical communication in the Writing and Communication Program at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia. In the classroom, Brittain Fellows use innovative digital pedagogy to teach multimodal communication strategies. In their own research, the Brittain Fellows work in diverse fields, from traditional literary studies to digital game studies to scientific discourse. TECHStyle publishes contributions from Brittain Fellows past and present, as well as guest bloggers from all areas of academe.
What is TECHStyle?

Posts range from scholarly articles in development to brief reflections on fresh teaching strategies. TECHStyle is also a venue for debate on questions related to pedagogy and scholarship, as well as a message board for news, announcements, committee reports, and calls for participation.
