DigiURI Media Club - Online
“Multimedia,” you say? You got it.
The DIGIURI Media Club is the perfect place to share your favorite media—from books to podcasts to documentaries—that advance our understanding of the changing world of media, technology, and learning in the 21st century. Each month members from all over the globe meet online to discussion one of the titles suggested on our collaboratively-developed LIST OF MEDIA TITLES.
Join in on this informal learning community. All are welcome to participate!
Led by Samantha Stanley (University of Hong Kong) and Michael Stoepel (American University of Paris), the DIGIURI Media Club was born from a discussion group at the 2018 Summer Institute in Digital Literacy.
