ENG 1100 Discourse and Delivery

Explore the digital divide and discover how it is no longer defined only in terms of one’s access to hardware and software. Assess a digital divide created by limited literacy skills (reading and writing) and a lack of cognitive skills needed to make effective use of communications-based technologies. Immerse yourself in the reading, writing, and critical-thinking practices necessary to communicate effectively through digital technologies. Embark on a comprehensive study of two key applications of knowledge: 1) cognitive proficiency—you’ll refine foundational communication skills of everyday life at school, at home, and at work, and 2) technical proficiency—you’ll explore and apply components of digital literacy, including a foundational knowledge of digital technology.
