The Five Cs of Digital Curation: Supporting Twenty-First-Century Teaching and Learning
Deschaine, Mark E.; Sharma, Sue Ann
InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching, v10 p19-24 2015
Digital curation is a process that allows university professors to adapt and adopt resources from multidisciplinary fields to meet the educational needs of twenty-first-century learners. Looking through the lens of new media literacy studies (Vasquez, Harste, & Albers, 2010) and new literacies studies (Gee, 2010), we propose that university professors be savvy consumers of multimedia through purposeful content curation. In this paper, we will discuss practices that university professors may use to transform teaching and learning through effective collection, categorization, critiquing, conceptualization, and circulation of resources deemed to have curricular and content standards value.
