The rapid pace of change in digital technologies has generated an unprecedented global inundation of information and disinformation. Students need to be equipped with the knowledge to enable them to: discern the credibility and reliability of information; authentically and ethically use primary and secondary materials; and produce communications content that reflects quality professional practice.
Students in this course develop knowledge and skills to become more discriminating producers and consumers of content. The course seeks to help students recognise reliable information, and teaches them how to apply critical-thinking skills to act on such information. Information and media literacy skills, and their application to professional contexts, are an important focus of this course.
