In the sixth episode of our online radio programmes – JISC On Air – we are exploring how universities and colleges can help teaching staff, researchers, support and administrative staff to develop their digital literacies – those capabilities which prepare an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society. In part two of the show, we will be looking at how digital literacy underpins the academic success and employability of students.

The show highlights how colleges and universities are developing holistic approaches and strategies for supporting the development of these skills and capabilities.

Kim Catcheside interviews staff working on the Digidol Project at Cardiff University hearing more about how the project is establishing an institution-wide approach for contextualising and embedding digital literacy into the development of academic staff, students, research students and administrative, managerial and support staff.

In the show Kim also speaks with Dr Andrew Eynon who is leading the Personal Actualisation and Development through Digital Literacies in Education project at Coleg Llandrillo. The overarching aim of this project is to create a digitally literate, skilled and confident workforce and student body across all the FE institutions in North Wales (Coleg Harlech, Coleg Menai, Coleg Llandrillo, Deeside College and Yale College Wrexham).

Helen Beetham, synthesis consultant for the JISC Developing Digital Literacies programme, and who has extensive experience of this topic, provides valuable insights into the emerging issues from the programme, whilst Alison Mitchell, Deputy Director of Vitae, speaks about the importance of digital literacies for researchers.
