The latest episode of JISC On Air Radio ("Digital Literacy – delivering the agenda within colleges and universities") provides a very timely insight into JISC Developing Digital Literacies Programme, and indeed some of the wider issues relating to developing and supporting digital literacies in the wider context.
"In the sixth episode of our online radio programmes – JISC On Air – we are exploring how universities and colleges can help teaching staff, researchers, support and administrative staff to develop their digital literacies – those capabilities which prepare an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society. In part two of the show, we will be looking at how digital literacy underpins the academic success and employability of students.
The show highlights how colleges and universities are developing holistic approaches and strategies for supporting the development of these skills and capabilities."
I've just tuned in on my journey home from the latest JISC Learning and Teaching Pracitce Experts Group meeting, and I can recommend taking 20 minutes out to listen. You can listen and/or download the programme from this link.
