The Susan Metros Lectures, Learning to Look - New Literacies for the Digital Age  (Academic)

Thursday September 27, 2012

3:00PM - Wells Hall, Room TBD

RSVP at: http://go.cal.msu.edu/metrosvisual

American college students are technology dependent and visually stimulated, but not always tech savvy and visually literate. While we educate students to read and write, we do not teach them to see. Institutions of higher education must revisit and revise the basic tenets of a foundational education, by asking, "What does it mean to be literate in a visually overloaded and digitally saturated world?"

By reframing institutional goals, applying discipline-specific instructional strategies, leveraging new and emerging technologies, and building upon the strength and will of community and culture, educators can prepare students to thrive as astute consumers, producers, and critics for this new visual and digital realm.
