Implementing a Model and Processes for Mapping Digital Literacy in the Curriculum (Online Badges)

George Evangelinos, Anglia Ruskin University

 =The presentation will discuss a process for embedding digital literacy in the curriculum by utilisation of a meta-framework defining digital literacies that could be delivered through technology-enhanced learning designs. The work builds on previous research that investigated the EU Digital Literacy DIGCOMP framework for its appropriateness to be used as a framework for the description and measurement of the digital capabilities of students and staff involved in tertiary healthcare education. Digital literacy is delivered as a graduate attribute through the utilisation of technology-enhanced learning activities that deliver aspects of the curriculum in a pedagogically-appropriate, technology-enabled way. An example of how this process had been utilised to map the digital-literacy characteristics of pilot programmes of study is presented. The study highlighted key aspects of the student experience and quality assurance implications when applying this process into practice. 

Linkedin project: Labake Fakunle, University of Edinburgh

We would like to work on creating research interest groups within the SRHE Newer Researchers LinkedIn Group. This is expected to help facilitate discussions, networking and sharing ideas amongst those with similar research topics or area of interest. As such, newer researchers can engage in meaningful discussions around their specific area of research interest while also benefiting from the advantages of membership of the SRHE network including access to information with respect to common issues around research such as methodologies, presenting at conferences, publishing, and other forms of support available. Importantly, while I will be responsible for coordinating this project, members of the group are encouraged to actively participate in creating the groups that best fit within the scope of their research interest.
