Meeting Digital Learners' Expanding Literacy Needs
Framing question for this learning circle: How can we support our academic communities as they strive to meet the expanded literacy needs of the new breed of digital learners?
Central to all higher education institutions' academic missions is a set of core values, or general education requirements, that underscore what it means to be literate in today's society. Many institutions are considering updating these requirements to take into account the expanded literacy needs of the new breed of digital learners. How can information and instructional technology leaders and professionals support their academic communities as they strive to broaden the definition of literacy to employ new media to decipher, interpret, express, and effectively communicate meaning beyond text?
