Research Literacy

Research Literacy within the field of communication is critical because it enables us to articulate mindfully about a communication problem, strategy, or initiative.  It also allows the researcher to analyzed and evaluate the selected area in depth.  A great example of research conducted on a communication problem and initiative was for my inquiry project about the “Millennials Culture Shock.” 

An example of a literature review that supports and illuminates a chosen area of inquiry is my analysis of the gender gap experience in the media.  In this literature review, you will have information that analyses the gender gap in the media.  It also reviews articles that showcase the importance of social media for strategic communication for a global audience.

To showcase the area in which I was able to locate, aggregate, and analyze credible research can be found in my digital presentation for my research on Millennial Culture Shock.
