ASCILITE Live! Webinar: A multidisciplinary approach to embedding digital literacy across the curricula
July 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Professional Literacy Suite (PLS) is a set of three embedded digital literacy modules developed to translate the University’s Graduate Learning Outcome of Digital Literacy and support employability. The PLS is the first suite of online digital and professional literacy modules created at a course wide level at Deakin University. Digital literacy and employability skills were identified as educational skill gaps as part of a key Business course renewal. The PLS was designed in response to this, created and maintained by a multi-disciplinary team with diverse skills and expertise, utilising an agile, responsive and iterative team approach. The modules leverage off the unique interactive and adaptive technologies of Tumult Hype and Smart Sparrow.
This session will give an overview of the PLS, how the multidisciplinary project team implemented and scaffolded the suite across the course, and the support provided for both staff and students. Participants will have the opportunity to see how the modules are embedded within the student Learning Management System, interact with the modules themselves and consider how it may be applied at their own institutions.
This project was awarded the 2018 ASCILITE Innovation Award in recognition of outstanding innovation in the development of the Professional Literacy Suite, as the project lead.
