Digital Literacies

We cannot develop students’ digital literacies without developing those of educators, as models and mentors. Digital skills focus on what and how, while digital literacies consider why, when, who, and for whom.

This 4-day course centers on the development of participatory, networked literacies that enable collaboration, contribution, and critical sense-making within a culture of information abundance. Focusing on the impact of the digital in education and higher education, the course fosters data literacy, digital presence, critical engagement with platforms, and the kinds of literacies demanded in an increasingly precarious world. The track will explore both hands-on and conceptual tools for navigating our contemporary information ecosystem, and is designed to support the practices of educators of any stripe.
