Digital Competencies as Ways of Knowing: A Digital Liberal Arts Framework

On Demand
Session Type: Virtual
Delivery Format: On-Demand
The work of defining digital competencies frameworks resists standardization across institutions due to diverging institutional needs. What should these frameworks encompass? How should they intersect with curricula? How should an institution of higher education describe them? We will draw on our experience creating a digital liberal arts framework at Trinity College to discuss how to adapt a broad digital competencies framework into one that is locally relevant.

Outcomes: Learn how to adapt a broad framework to local institutions * Discover different approaches to digital competencies/fluencies/literacies * Connect and collaborate with peers working on similar initiatives
