ETEC 531

Cultural and New Media Studies

This course focuses on understanding media and associated freedoms of cultural expression and the press for learning, teaching, and public pedagogy.  Media studies is a dynamic discipline tailored to exploring youth, culture, and education through concepts or techniques such as articulation, framing, regulation, remediation, representation, and transcoding.  In addition to understanding culture, media, and the process of meaning-making, this course focuses on making and managing media across formats, cultural expression, and civic engagement.  Making minimal distinction among (the) media of, on, and in education, the course provides a survey of media studies and new media with an emphasis on media education and literacy.  Media education and literacy are among the most relevant challenges to “official” knowledge and represent key movements in the sociology of curriculum.  Hence, this course balances practice with ethical, legal, and theoretical aspects and emphasizes the design of curriculum and courses for teaching media studies and for integrating media literacy across the curriculum.
