The Office of Digital Learning has recently begun a series on our blog about the newly-formed information environmentalism movement as an integral part of cultivating digital fluency. As Amy Collier writes in her post Attending to the Information Environment of the Web, “Misinformation on the web is polarizing us, it’s radicalizing us, and we should be paying attention.” Amy makes a call for higher education in general — and Middlebury in particular — to lead the way in improving our information ecosystem. To learn more about information environmentalism, and to join in, we invite you to begin by reading Amy’s post.
To learn more about other projects and initiatives supported by the Office of Digital Learning, we invite you to peruse This Week in ODL, a series on our blog where readers can find updates on the projects, news, and developments underway at our office. And don’t forget to check our Projects page where you can find descriptions of and links to our many projects.
