Preparing for a digital future

A session at JISC Conference 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:00pm to 4:00pm

Digital literacy for students, researchers and teaching staff

UK Further and Higher Education are facing the toughest financial constraints for a generation. At the same time, digital literacy is an agenda which aligns well with economic recovery, as it concerns the employability of UK graduates, the health of UK research and innovation, and the capacity of individuals and organisations to make use of digital opportunities. Digital literacy defines those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society.

Through the findings of the Supporting Learners in a Digital Age (SLIDA) JISC-funded study and by hearing from the exemplar institutional case studies, the session will provide recommendations on how institutions can better develop the digital literacies of their students, teaching staff and researchers, to meet the demands of 21st century employment.
