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. 

It is organized on September 11th-14th, 2018 by the Groupe de Recherche en Médiation des Savoirs (Knowledge Mediation Research Group) at the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, in partnership with the Canada Research Chair in Media Education and Human Rights (Université TELUQ).

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:
  1. theoretical frameworks in the study of digital, media and information literacies (one workshop);
  2. epistemological issues in new literacies research (one workshop);
  3. methods for observing, documenting, and assessing literacies and their associated educational practices and policies (three workshops);
  4. 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.

  • Workshop #6 additional meetings
    We have eight free slots in our one-to-one meeting schedule with experts, for PhD students who do NOT already have appointments with our experts. So if you already are on the schedule, you are not eligible for these additional slots.

    If you are not on the schedule and wish to meet with one of our experts, please select your preferences in the following google form. If demand exceeds supply, we will do our best to satisfy a maximum of people. A maximum of one appointment per PhD student will be made.

    If you get an appointment, you should think of a five-minute pitch to explain what your thesis is about to the expert you will meet. They will not have read your project in advance.
