Self, Society, and the Digital Tsunami era
Dr Yurni Said-Sirhan
Cyberbullying, cyber-racism, online falsehoods. These are some of the phenomena that can be observed online. In an era of overwhelmingly diverse viewpoints within social media platforms, how has digital communication shaped and changed the way we communicate and respond to each other as human beings? Have we compromised more than we have gained? Drawing upon perspectives from various disciplines, this course helps students explore how opinions and ideas are formed, debated and transmitted in an age where human interaction is constantly mediated by technology.
We would like to encourage everyone who enjoyed using CAPT Courses (previously known as CAPTMods) to contribute back to the community by writing reviews for courses that you have taken before. Your efforts will go a long way in building up a vibrant and rich CAPT academic environment!
1. Because the experience of each course will differ according to the professor teaching the course, at the start of your review, please state the semester taken and the name of the professor who taught the course in that semester.
2. Other students will read your review to get an idea of what taking the course will be like and this may affect their course registration choices. As such, please maintain objectivity when leaving your review and take note that we will go through a moderation process before reviews get posted.
3. The experiences alleged in these reviews have not been verified by CAPT or CAPT Courses. Please take all anecdotes with a grain of salt.
