Digital literacies are those capabilities that are necessary for an individual living, learning and working in a digital society (JISC, 2014). The use of digital technologies has become integral to every aspect of daily routines, including teaching and learning processes and academic administration. Accordingly, academic staff need to be digitally literate to work competently in this rapidly growing area. This module aims to provide skills, knowledge, and understanding of how to work in your digital environment in an academic context, and to enhance your skills to efficiently, critically, creatively, and safely work with digital technologies in your daily academic routine. The first topic reminds us of basic computer concepts and operations. We then move on to internet fundamentals, which covers recommended techniques of searching for information, and introduces useful web-based applications. The third topic concerns making good use of your virtual learning environment, using Moodle as an example. Then we explore the fundamentals of multimedia, with the aim of developing the necessary skills to create and introduce engaging resources for your students. In the final topic, you have the opportunity to practice editing digital media.
