GSE Summer 2013 Literacy Institute: Re-Imagining Teaching & Learning for Contemporary Times

The 2013 Fordham Literacy Institute, which will be held at the Fordham Lincoln Center campus on June 29th through July 9th, focuses on issues of teaching and learning in a digital world.  Bringing expertise from various perspectives, speakers will challenge teachers to rethink their classrooms and to explore various technologies for teaching literacy and content to contemporary learners.

As we look to the future of education, we know we must engage learners digitally. We must develop digital literacies and critical content knowledge, and we must transform classrooms and schools that have evolved from industrial models. Institute participants will examine where we are headed and provide tools for how to get there.

Featured Speakers:
Will Richardson, co-founder of Powerful Learning Practice;
Sara Kajder, nationally recognized expert on contemporary literacies and author of Adolescents and Digital Literacies: Learning Alongside Our Students;
Mark Hofer, Dorman Family Distinguished Associate Professor at the College of William and Mary.

Institute courses may be taken for a professional development certificate or Fordham credits, at either the master’s or doctoral level.
