NOEL STUDIO PLC: Critical Reading and the "Digital Demand" Starts Tomorrow
Facilitator: Dr. Lisa Bosley
Technology is changing reading practices, our students’ and our own, in fundamental ways. As instructors of digital natives, how can we adapt expectations for reading in our courses to meet the digital demand? In this PLC, we will consider in what ways our purposes for assigning reading might shift and how our expectations for course reading might change.
Participants will explore the role of reading for learning and the possibilities to make long-form reading relevant in a Google world. We will ask the question posed by cognitive neuroscientist Maryanne Wolf: how do we "preserve the deepest forms of reading from the past, while developing the cognitive skills necessary for this century’s next generation?”
