Save the Date! Write@UGA 2022

On February 15, 2022, Write@UGA at the University of Georgia will proudly host this year’s guest speaker event series on “Building Critical Online Literacies.” This event will take place online, featuring keynote speaker Michael Caulfield, Director of Blended and Networked Learning at Washington State University Vancouver.

Given the current media landscape and the complexity of information, misinformation, and disinformation online, the need for a critical online media literacy among UGA students is more pressing than ever. It is imperative that we support our students—and all UGA community members—as they confront competing narratives online about pressing issues (e.g., COVID-19, mask usage, vaccines, etc.) in the news and across social media platforms.
