Digital literacy is the ability to use digital technologies, communication tools, and networks to find, evaluate, create, communicate, and be critical about information, to solve problems, and to participate in an increasingly digital society.
This session will explore the challenges and opportunities of reading and writing in online contexts. We will discuss the different ways that people read and write online, and the impact of these technologies on our literacy practices.
This session is designed for participants who are interested in improving their skills in online reading and writing. It is also a valuable resource for participants who are taking online courses or who plan to use online resources for their academic work. It will provide participants with the skills they need to read and write effectively in online contexts by looking at the affordances that online texts have over print. It will examine the effect of hypertextually, interactivity, and multimediality on texts as well as look at tools available to assist online writing.
The session will be interactive and participants will have the opportunity to share their own experiences with reading and writing online. We will also provide resources and tools that participants can use to further their own digital literacy learning.
Please note: this event will close to enrolments at 23:59 UTC on 21 January 2024.
