“Digital literacy is intended to support accessible, inclusive, and equitable digital environments for members of the post-secondary system. This work assumes that digital literacy will support people as they move from the post-secondary system into the workforce.” — Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills Digital Learning Strategy
Digital Literacy Project
BCcampus is working in partnership with the Ministry of Post-Secondary Education and Future Skills and the Digital Learning Advisory Committee (DLAC) to deliver open educational resources and professional development to amplify the provincial Digital Learning Strategy and the eight competencies in its Post-Secondary Digital Literacy Framework (PDF):
- Ethical and legal considerations
- Technology supports
- Information literacy
- Digital scholarship
- Communication and collaboration
- Creation and curation
- Digital well-being
- Community-based learning
Do you have materials that relate to these themes that could be openly licensed and shared with the B.C. post-secondary system? If so, please get in touch through our Digital Literacy Project: Call for Open Content.
