* ReDMIL 2018 DOCTORAL SUMMER SCHOOL - Research on
* 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
- / 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.
