Greece Maymester

Look up from your phone! Were you looking at your social media feed?  News? Checking email?  How do we know what we're looking at is reliable and accurate? How do other countries approach this dilemma? During Maymester 2024, we'll explore these concepts in Greece

Introduction to Information Literacy and Technology (ISCI 202) teaches you how to be a critical consumer of information.  During Maymester 2024, we'll be exploring these concepts in Greece.  We'll explore how a different culture affects information consumption while getting to know Greece through cultural, environmental, and technical literacies.

So put your phone down, and let's go visit the Acropolis and see if everyone is taking selfies!
