ENG 111: Communication in the Digital Age
Has social media created new contexts or simply added tools to previously employed methods? These courses will explore the effects of the Digital Age on all forms of communication. Students will experience a variety of 21st century communication methods by writing publicly and privately across a variety of platforms including blogs, professional websites, and social media forums (in addition to more traditional writing forms) to gain a greater sense of audience and opportunities in the Digital Age.
Some questions we will explore:
- How do popular trends in communication impact global, national, and local communities?
- How can one use social media to find, keep, and leave a job?
- How does one mine social media as a source of reasonable information? Can a blog be as reliable a source as an academic journal?
