The Learning Curve: College Students, Social Media, and Metaliteracy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

St Cloud State University professors Rachel Wexelbaum and Plamen Miltenoff have developed a credit bearing course on social media and its research applications for undergraduates. Teaching the course has challenged existing knowledge of “digital natives” and their understanding of research, social media, technology, and global citizenship. Development and execution of the course has also brought to light the successes and challenges of co-teaching, and how a “traditional” librarian and technologist have discovered common pedagogical ground. In this session, we will facilitate a discussion to share experiences teaching students about social media and technology for research and collaborative learning.
