Writing and Research for New Media

Description of Course:

This writing-intensive course focuses on writing for new and emergent media environments. While a number of technologies will be introduced and discussed in the course, the focus of the course will not be on the particular details of any one technology but rather on developing technological literacy; that is, the ability to understand and master new and emerging technologies as they appear.

Students will be asked to build writing skills by writing and editing public blogs over the course of the semester. Students will also be tasked with evaluating social media and other writing platforms and developing strategies for engaging with these platforms successfully.

Required Texts:

Howard Rheingold's "Net Smart: How to Thrive Online."
