The aim of this session is to discuss the different kinds of literacies and best practices for teaching them for various audiences.
Though each of the literacies, media, news, information and digital, has a different component, what is really different about them? Additionally, should they be taught differently? This session will encourage discussion and the takeaway will be to outline the 1-2 best practices for teaching an introductory course in any of the literacies.
A follow-up activity is for attendees to share one resource for one of the literacies and include a sentence or two on why they are sharing the resource. As a result of this activity, we can create a quick, go to reference for anyone seeking to teach any of the literacies and to share on social media.
