This panel will investigate critical literacies for our current mass information age, including visual literacy, news literacy, global literacy, and information literacy. Panelists will discuss the literacies that are crucial to our students’ abilities to solve problems, make sense of the world, and engage as citizens in their many communities, as well as literacy practices that move students to critically question and challenge received narratives and norms. The panel will focus especially on these literacies as they relate to the teaching, learning, and research of undergraduate students.
