Within the field of education and informational technology, technologies like social media — near ubiquitous in the lives of today’s high school and college students — raise interesting questions about learning, teaching, literacy, design and democracy for researchers and educators. In this panel we will consider multiple perspectives on teaching with and about social media from researchers at five different institutions. Three panelists: Greenhow, Gleason and Krutka all teach variations of a Social Media in Education course within graduate programs at their respective universities and will each present an overview of their course goals and curriculum. This will be enriched by commentary from the panel chair and moderator, also social media in education researchers. The session will be organized for maximum audience participation to collectively generate agreement about an essential social media in higher education curriculum across institutions and how to implement and evaluate it.
