ASCILITE Live! Webinar: A multidisciplinary approach to embedding digital literacy across the curricula – Today at 12pm AEST
The Professional Literacy Suite (PLS) is a set of three embedded digital literacy modules developed to translate Deakin University’s Graduate Learning Outcome of Digital Literacy and support employability. 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.
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.
