Digital Literacies Project

The project aims to understand, support and develop the digital literacies of City's staff and students to support effective use of technology.

Digital literacies is a term which encapsulates not only the skills required to use technology but also confidence, appropriate use, and the various literacies associated with using technology, such as information literacy, communication and collaboration literacy and media literacy.

The project is currently focussing on the following activities:

  1. Jisc Digital Experience Insights survey (March - October 2021)
    To use the Jisc Digital Experience Insights surveys to better understand levels of staff and student digital literacies and the support and development required in order to make recommendations for supporting digital literacies at City.
  2. LinkedIn Learning for students (April 2021 - July 2022)
    To work with Schools and other professional services to implement, promote, support and evaluate the use of LinkedIn Learning for students.
  3. Student Digital Community (Sept 2021- July 2022)
    To oversee a student led community which provides digital skills support to City students and supports with rolling out digital literacies projects.

For questions about these activities, please contact Lauren Regan, Digital Literacies Co-ordinator, LEaD - [email protected]
