DTC 101 offers an introduction to digital technology and culture that integrates literary studies, rhetoric and composition, art and design, business, and sociology to prepare students for the technical and cultural challenges of the 21st century. It provides students with the history and culture of digital technology, while also providing hands-on experience with digital tools. We will delve into questions about what makes something digital and how we conceptualize our lives beyond the digital.

 

Note: Save all the writing you do during the semester. You can clear your files in May. Until then, you never know what may prove to be useful. Periodically save different versions of your work so that you have a record of its process.
