This study set out to uncover how participants represent their experiences in a professional development institute for multimodal composition. Though clearly locally situated, the study’s findings are relevant for WPAs in a variety of contexts looking to design similar programs. They also suggest some pressing issues for the field of writing studies as it aims to prepare students for 21st-century environments. The following sections extend this study’s findings to larger disciplinary conversations and explore key issues this study raises for future research and practice.
