The Use and Abuse of Digital Platforms

November 16, 2017, 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Open to: All instructors and academic support staff

Description:

How do issues of privacy, copyright, and plagiarism in a digital environment intersect with our use of digital tools such as turnitin.com or public sites such as WordPress, LinkedIn, or other social media? How do we remain ethical in our use of digital media and platforms and encourage our students to do so as well?

Join us for a discussion of ways we can remain true to our ethics while remaining technologically relevant. Bring your questions, ideas, and concerns.

Registration is not required, but please RSVP so we know how many people to expect. Light refreshments will be served.

Series description

Join us for our ongoing conversation series about critical thinking and teaching in a digital age. Our theme for Fall 2018 is Reimagining Writing. How are concepts like style, authorship, authenticity, and authority evolving as remixing, collaboration, and even artificial intelligence tools become more commonplace in content creation? How can we rethink audience, privilege, knowledge, and research practices in ways that are both rigorous and generative?

All programs will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  in the Academic Innovation Studio.

All instructors and academic staff are welcome; no prior experience necessary. Free snacks and adult beverages included!

Hosted by the Berkeley College Writing Programs and the Library.
