C I 5845 - Global Perspectives in Media and Technology (3)


When Offered: On Demand
This course requires students to analyze and evaluate the roles media and technology play in shaping individuals, communities, cultures, and civic engagement throughout the world. Media literacy will be integrated throughout the course as a critical perspective through which to study global issues and ideas. Students will explore how media and technology support or subvert opportunities for networking, participation, discourse, and action related to a range of local and global issues, including environmental issues. As part of this course, students may engage in global collaboration with international students studying abroad and/or locally. Students will synthesize new understandings and perspectives for how media and technology may be impacting conceptions of physical and digital communities and how they shape local and global relationships, issues, ideas, and ideologies.
