We discuss the rise of media literacy in higher education and how we focus on the blurring of entertainment, information, and persuasion that is reshaping work, life, and citizenship. How do we best better prepare college students to be responsible communicators who can use a variety of formats and genres for self-expression and advocacy? Teaching media literacy at the college level forces educators to make choices. Do you focus on the rise of news partisanship, algorithmic personalization and social media, stereotypes and media addiction, advertising and media economics, or media influence on personal and social identity?
Join us for small-group conversation with colleagues from around the world and discuss how to design memorable and transformative learning experiences that build the habits of mind needed to navigate an increasingly complex media environment.
