Class Goals

Page history last edited by dparry@... 13 years, 9 months ago

Given the expectations for this class, you might ask yourself: “What’s in it for me?” A fair question, since I am going to ask a great deal of you, probably more than any other class you are taking this semester, not just because of the workload, but because I am requiring you to participate in a whole new style of learning. Let me begin by answering the question this way. . . I think we are approaching a critical cultural juncture, where literacy itself is changing. There will develop, perhaps already has developed, a significant divide between those who know how to use these emerging media, and those who uncritically consume them. My goal for the class is to help you move into that first category: to become active, critical producers in this new media landscape.  


Concretely this means:

  • Develop collaborative learning skills
  • Become familiar with social media and how they operate
  • Understand the larger issues and debates shaping the transformation of media
