Course content

This course enables teachers, educators and creative practitioners to respond to the challenges that digital culture poses on education. You'll develop a thorough knowledge of the media that children and young people are engaging in, reflecting on how it shapes their literacy and learning at home and at school.

You'll address urgent questions and themes, such as how children learn literacy in the digital age; how we can support young people to be authors as well as players of games; how we ensure that contemporary teaching of literacy is inclusive and socially just.

The course is underpinned by research in the area of new and digital literacies. A key feature of the programme is its link to the Literacy Research Cluster, with opportunities to participate in current projects, an active reading/viewing group and a seminar programme.
