In partnership with the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills and the Digital Learning Advisory Committee, a group of people with deep and broad expertise and experience across the sector, BCcampus is pleased to be leading the development of a collection of open materials to support digital literacy in B.C. post-secondary institutions. This collection will be made available to learners through an online repository.
The collection will include high-quality, openly licensed courses and resources to support the development of digital literacy knowledge, skills, and abilities.
We seek content submissions for inclusion in the collection that fulfill the requirements of the eight areas of digital literacy competencies identified in B.C.’s Post-Secondary Digital Learning Strategy: ethical and legal consideration, technology supports, information literacy, digital scholarship, communication and collaboration, creation and curation, digital well-being, and community-based learning.
Do you have digital literacy content that will help post-secondary educators accomplish any of the following outcomes?
- Understand and abide by principles of privacy protection, inclusion, and accessibility in digital spaces.
- Explore new technologies, and select appropriate tools for different tasks.
- Understand how online information is produced, prioritized, and presented.
- Use digital technologies for learning, research, and decision-making.
- Use online tools to make valuable contributions in digital spaces.
- Create multimedia products that reach different audiences and share stories.
- Create healthy boundaries with technology, and use digital tools to maintain well-being.
- Communicate and collaborate meaningfully with digital communities.
If you answered yes to any of these prompts, we would love to hear from you.
In Phase 2 we are particularly interested in receiving openly licensed content designed for post-secondary faculty and instructor professional development in communication and collaboration, digital well-being, and community-based learning.
Content may be in the form of textbooks, courses or course materials, websites, videos, infographics, podcasts, book chapters, journal articles, tools, or tutorials, preferably in an editable format.
Submissions must be openly licensed or be content an institution is willing to openly license and make shareable in the collection. Submissions will be reviewed by a group of evaluators from our sector prior to inclusion in the collection.
