This session will introduce the work being undertaken by a JISC- funded study based at the Institute, which is exploring what digital literacies our students are using or need to develop. This work has followed a phased approach, starting with general data from the iGraduate survey, using this to inform a series of focus groups (with PGCE, Masters, Doctoral and Online MRes students), and to lay the groundwork for a longitudinal study with a dozen students. The findings to date have identified practical challenges facing students' use of technology in their studies, pointed to conceptual issues such as their developing sense of professional and scholarly identity, and allowed us to map the spaces and places that students use or create as they pursue their studies. The presentation will identify early implications and provide an overview of the remainder of the project's work. Participants will be invited to relate the project's work to their students' activities and inform the implementation phase that will conclude the project.
