quote from student about what was learned

Welcome!  The Digital/Critical initiative is a collaboration between the University Library and the Faculty Center. Going into its third year, this program brings together a small cohort of faculty working together to transform their traditional paper-based research assignments into new digital media assignments.

Calling Faculty to Join the 3rd Annual Digital/Critical Cohort! 

Think of how the New York Times uses interactive graphics, slideshows, and other media to tell a story. It’s remarkable how many of us prefer media to text for getting information.  Why not bring that into your classroom?  Here’s an opportunity to refresh a class, give students a creative outlet, and produce evidence of learning far more engaging than the traditional research paper.

Join our new Digital/Critical cohort and your students will develop 21st century job skills at the same time they learn discipline content. Researched sources and texts will be integrated using multimodal tools into new expressions of learning. We will empower students with the skill set of new literacies, acknowledging that information is created, published, and distributed in many forms.

APPLY BY APRIL 8, 2016. For details and to apply, see How to Apply.
