Course Description
The growing presence of technology in our personal and professional lives provides incontrovertible evidence of change. From individual reflections on the costs of innovation to meaningful connection through digital communication, each of us has an impulse to shape change. This impulse often pushes us to learn, adapt, and create. It also demands digital literacy. Together, we’ll explore digital literacy as a concept and practice that offers tools for shaping cultural change, as we navigate the present and look toward the future. In DIGC 120, students will learn to deconstruct, create, and remix projects using digital tools they’ll encounter in a variety of settings outside of this course. Students will also grapple with concepts that shape our current technological and social landscape. Together, we’ll question assumptions about digital citizenship and challenge claims about digital natives. I’ll push students to think critically about audience, genre, rhetorical purpose, and design, along the way; and by semester’s end, we’ll have created various digital artifacts that speak to cultural change.
