21st Century Literacies: Developing and Implementing Digital Assignments FLC

This FLC met during spring semester of 2014 and brought together faculty interested in exploring the value and potential of developing and implementing digital assignments in the classroom. Participants explored various benefits and challenges connected to digital assignments, including the potential to promote meta-cognitive development, increase student engagement, and assess student learning. At the end of the semester, participants shared a digital assignment they had created.
