Abstract

Panel Session - Given the importance of digital literacy across higher education, workplaces and civic society, how do we promote through student learning abilities to leverage digital tools and platforms to resolve difficult problems, make informed decisions, design creatively and communicate critically? This SoTL Brief draws together experience on integrating authentic academic digital projects into teaching practice, pooling together insights generated across multiple institutions, countries, disciplines, and teaching contexts. The brief explores evidence of student engagement, motivation, self-learning, meaningful outcomes for intended audiences and empowerment, and reflects critically on the transformative potential of these practices to develop greater resiliency among learners.

Proposal accepted, however the conference was later cancelled due to the out break of the pandemic.
