Promoting Digital Literacies in Students
About this module
What is your role in promoting digital literacy skills with your students? Digital literacy has become increasingly significant in Higher Education as we prepare our students for the future workforce. As educators, are we fully preparing our students to use technologies to access information, be creative and innovative, solve problems, communicate, participate, learn and support others in digital spaces? This module invites you to consult your students about the answers to these questions and to take a collaborative approach to supporting them with their digital learning needs. Once you have defined the areas you would like to focus on, you will design a digital literacy challenge to put your students’ digital skills and capabilities to the test.
TEN modules are designed to support you with the delivery of high-quality student experiences, while building teaching capabilities, embracing learning and teaching challenges, and being responsive to changes in education. On successful completion of this module you will be able to:
|Knowledge||Describe digital literacies and understand the needs of your students|
|Skills||Assess students’ digital literacies|
|Application||Redesign learning and teaching practices to help develop digital capabilities in students|
Domain: Optimising Digital Technologies
This collection of capabilities enables you to intentionally use digital technologies to enhance student learning experiences.
