Section 3: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 2:00-2:50 PM

Professor: Eva Grouling Snider

This course explores what it means to be a digitally literate communicator in the 21st century. In the course, you will examine your own digital literacies, looking at how you have developed digital literacies in the past and how you continue to do so in the present. You will also seek to expand your own digital literacies, learning a new digital literacy and teaching it to other students, as well.

While much of the course asks you to look inward to your own digital literacies, you will also look outward to the digital literacies of others. We will read about and discuss theories of digital literacies and consider what makes one “digitally literate.” We will explore key terms and concepts in digital literacies and work to expand your critical understanding of how communication technologies function in the world.
