Do students still read course literature? If not, what are they using instead? Do they prefer printed or digital texts? What are the effects of it all on student comprehension? Welcome to a literature seminar where these questions would be addressed.

The discussion would be around article listed below, and the results of a recent survey by UTN on students reading habits.
