The Digital Literacy in the Disciplines programme in the Higher Education Academy has sought to explore the discipline-based issues in developing digital literacy. To do this funding was divided into three areas.
- Mini-projects: 8 small grants of ~£5k to establish nodes generating online interactive e-learning resources created by students.
- Case studies:
- Micro-projects (57) to establish a digital change within practice in an institution: This element of the funding was aligned with the Changing the Learning Landscape Programme. Each of the 12 workshops run under CLL in 2012-2013 invited small bids for digital innovations, enhancements or adoptions of practice within an institution - including a development of digital literacy. To enable these to be managable with limited resources each project had a template-driven approach.
This is an open working wiki space to gather and discuss Digital Literacy outputs and outcomes from two project strands within the HEA. It also serves to share project details, outputs and outcomes to other project participants.
These collections are:
- Digital Literacy in the Disciplines
- Changing the Learning Landscape workshop projects (Digital Literacy elements)
Both the above are situated within a discipline context and managed by practitioners engaged in teaching students at various levels within their discipline. These projects projects are running over the 2013-2014 academic year. Final outputs will be published in July 2014.
