Defining Digital Literacies

October 16, 2019, 4:00pm to 5:30pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Graduate Students, Instructors

Models of digital literacies emphasize the importance of critical consumption and creation of content as a part of one’s digital identity and wellbeing. How do we facilitate students’ active engagement online as responsible digital citizens? How do we encourage the skillsets and mindsets that make up digital literacies in a classroom setting? How do we define digital literacies?

We will look at several models (Virginia Tech, Jisc, and New Media Consortium) in order to better understand and define digital literacies and discuss how we can develop them in teaching and learning.

Feel free to bring others for discussion! Refreshments provided.
