Abstract

Students in higher education engage with the world of digital media while doing various projects in a variety of disciplines. Yet, digital media has been heavily criticized for misinforming, manipulating the truth, escalating social issues and serving the agenda of the powerful. One rarely knows how/why/with what consequences communication happens in the contemporary digital space. How can we read the news — and discern fake information from trustworthy? How can we powerfully engage in a meaningful and fair conversation in digital media? The 15-week course develops students’ ability to critically consume digital media information and to powerfully engage in a conversation, by using rhetoric, argumentation, and theories behind communication behavior in the society. Students will learn how to ‘read’ news and information posted online as well as learn how to produce news and information which has a strong impact. The language of instruction is English.
