Many learners enter further and higher education lacking the skills needed to apply digital technologies to education. As 90% of new jobs will require excellent digital skills, improving digital literacy is an essential component of developing employable graduates.

Courses that embed core digital skills, as well as subject specific use of technology, enable students to gain the skills and confidence they need to use digital technology not only to support their learning but also in the workplace.

JISC have offered a document which enables institutions to think about the digital literacy capabilities they have – a useful exercise to encourage thinking about what, and why … and potentially pushing towards change.
