SEM02Z-Digital Citizenship in the Liberal Arts Community (separate registration is required)

Wednesday, February 15 | 1:00pm - 4:00pm CT | Montgomery
Session Type: Additional Fee Program
Delivery Format: Postconference Workshop
This workshop occurs after the ELI Annual Meeting program concludes. Workshop participation is strictly limited to full-conference registrants from small, residential liberal arts colleges.
This session provides an opportunity to collectively and collaboratively begin to articulate what a liberal arts digital citizen looks like by identifying what is already being done at our institutions, imagining possible futures, and setting goals toward this effort. We will start by looking at our own digital practices and digital citizenship and then consider and visualize the digital landscape as navigated by our students. We will then focus on the work being done in building digital literacies; student, faculty, staff, and institutional digital capacities; and civic responsibility, using the lens of what we as a group have identified as digital citizenship specifically connected to the liberal arts experience.
Outcomes:
* Recognize one’s individual spectrum of personal and professional digital practices
* Articulate commonalities of a liberal arts digital citizen, as well as recognize multiple definitions and approaches to teaching digital citizenship; operationalize how each institution is interpreting digital citizenship
* Become conversant with concepts such as digital identity, digital environments, participatory culture, and digital literacies, as well as frameworks for understanding personal web engagement
* Identify possible next steps (short and long term) for their institution
