Abstract

Digital literacies have been embedded within faculty professional development at the University of Brighton following the design and development of the University’s Digital Literacies Framework (DLF). Digital literacy is defined as “those capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in a digital society” (JISC, 2012). The DLF (https://studentfolio.brighton.ac.uk/diglits/) consists of 4 categories that align to faculty areas of work: - Learning and teaching - Research - Communication and collaboration - Administration. For each literacy there is an explanation of what, why and how with links to resources and training opportunities. These DLF developments provide an example of putting theory into practice through their integration within faculty professional development in the University’s Professional Recognition and Development Scheme and the Postgraduate Certificate in Learning & Teaching in Higher Education.
