The learning and teaching team have expertise in digital literacy capabilities, including ICT literacy and information, data and media literacy. Digital literacy is widely recognised as a fundamental element of learning, scholarship and research, and has been recognised as a key priority for lifelong learning by the UK government. ‘Digital literacy’, in the broadest sense, is “the capabilities required to thrive in and beyond education, in an age when digital forms of information and communication predominate” (Beetham, H et al. 2012).
We provide support to both staff and students in the development of digital capabilities and information skills, through generic and departmental specific training sessions and one to one support. You can book a place on one of our courses and access training materials on the IT training webpage.
