This is the course site for ENGL 116–a reading course at Diablo Valley College. On this site, you will have access to course information, documents, links, and discussion boards. Throughout this reading course, we will develop our ability to be strong “readers” (as well as question what strong reading really means) both in and outside of DVC.
The focus and theme of this course is “Reading New Technologies”. This is a class where we will consider the following questions:
How does the rise of new technologies of reading influence our relationship with the world, our communities, our education, our environment, and so forth? How do we (and others) define or visualize our relationship to new technologies? How does the advent of digital technologies change the way we read, consume, and contribute information? Does it?
