To celebrate Media Literacy Week, MediaSmarts will be hosting an event that will bring together academics to intentionally discuss researching digital media literacy in Canada.
Through a discussion of their recent/current projects, panelists will highlight different approaches to studying key digital media literacy issues including: digital equity and inclusion; the use of multi-media in the classroom; social media and big data analysis; and artificial intelligence and online privacy.
Panelists will also reflect on how they teach research methods and how they mentor early career researchers interested in studying digital media literacy and the social impacts of technology.
The event will begin at 12:30 pm on Oct 28. You can register to attend by clicking here.
