Digital Literacy, Digital Storytelling, and the Role of the Academic Librarian

An emergent trend in higher education today is the ever-increasing number of faculty who are allowing students to create video and multimedia projects as an alternative to the traditional research paper. This session will explore the current and future roles academic libraries and librarians should play in this environment. The topics covered in this session are: digital literacy and the librarian’s role, working effectively with faculty on assignment design, and digital storytelling & video assignments and the academic library’s support role.

Speakers: Ellysa Cahoy & Anu Vedantham, Penn State University Libraries.
