Integrating digital literacies into the curriculum to enhance student digital learning experience
This webinar will help you think through the potential of integrating digital literacies into the curriculum. Starting with a discussion on the conceptualisation of digital literacy as a social practice and what this means for learning and assessment activity (LAA) design. Dr Tabisa Mayisela will cover factors that influence (first-year) students’ digital literacy practices and how they acquire these practices and skills when digital literacy development activities are part of course LAAs. She will then demonstrate a systems approach to designing learning and assessment activities with two outcomes: students’ achievement of course learning outcomes and their development of digital literacy. You will also spend time rethinking your own LAA design followed by a discussion. For first-year course lecturers, the assumption is that they have an idea of their students' computer literacy levels.
