This presentation explores the possibilities for digitial literacy in potentially every class, every major, and every discipline across the curriculum. Professor Todd Taylor will describe how the interdisciplinary writing program that he directs at UNC-Chapel Hill serves as a threshold digital literacy experience for first-year students as they enter the university. The presentation shares examples of critical, analytic student work in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Professor Taylor will demonstrate how the “learning curve” can be flattened with a new generation of powerful digital literacy tools, such as Adobe Creative Cloud, so that instructors and students alike can spend more time on teaching and learning their courses and less time on the software. The presentation showcases free, online support materials, including the new e-textbook Adobe Creative Cloud Across the Curriculum: A Guide for Students and Teachers as well as assignment modules and sample student work in Adobe Education Exchange.
