* ReDMIL 2018 DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL - Research on Digital/Media/Information Literacy
* Where / when: UCLouvain, Belgium - September 11th-14th, 2018

The RedMIL 2018 doctoral summer school aims at contributing to the convergence between digital, media and information literacy research by bringing together researchers from all three communities, to foster the scientific debate and explore connections between them.

The summer school is an international training program that will alternate between framing presentations by senior researchers and the in-depth discussion of emerging research by participating PhD students.

The theme of the 2018 edition is: "Literacies as culture, practices, or competences". Participants will be invited to question the way they define digital/media/information literacy in terms of culture, practices, or competences, what it entails in terms of methods for their research, and how it shapes the usefulness of their research and how and where they can valorize its outputs.

The Summer School will include six half-day workshops on the following topics: - / Theoretical frameworks / in the study of digital, media and information literacies (one workshop);
- / Epistemological issues / in new literacies research (one workshop);
- / Methods / for observing, documenting, and assessing literacies and their associated educational practices and policies (three workshops); - Designing research with social relevance and / valorizing research / results in society (one workshop).

Participating PhD students will have the opportunity to present their work in two workshops, on two different topics.

Confirmed speakers:
     Maria José Brites, Lusófona University of Porto, Portugal
     Sirkku Kotilainen, University of Tampere, Finland
     Normand Landry, TELUQ (Université du Québec), Canada
