A new metaliteracy essay by Tom Mackey entitled “Translating a Blended Cyprus Residency Study in the Digital Arts to Online” is featured in the latest edition of All About Mentoring (Issue 55 Autumn 2021, pp. 37-42) published by SUNY Empire State College.
The article explores how metaliteracy informed the design of a course entitled Ethics of Digital Art and Design for the international Cyprus Residency offered in the summer of 2019 (see class photo). The development of the residency study as an online course for the Digital Arts curriculum at SUNY Empire State College is explored as well.
A discussion of Linkr Education and how it is incorporated in the online version is provided. Metaliterate learners develop professional profiles and produce multimedia publications about course themes in the Linkr Education learning environment.
The application of metaliteracy in both learning experiences is central to the course description, learning outcomes, and learning activities. The relationship between each course is examined and practical insights are provided about how to embed metaliteracy into learning design in multimodal settings.
