Digital and Information Literacy seen very much in the context of Employability .
Briefly describe how we work now in terms of working with module teams
Briefly talk about our maping of DIL and our cross-mapping exercise .
Digital and Information Literacy (DIL) Skills are an important part of a student’s skills set, and an explicit requirement of a number of vocational and professional standards, e.g. Social Work
DIL shares many skills similarities with those in the new Employability framework and we are working with Enhanced Employability and Career Progression colleagues as they prepare to map employability skills in selected qualifications
The grid on the slide shows where Employability skills match both DIL skills development and the JISC Digital Capabilities Learner Profile. You can see how much overlap there is. It,s a piece of work we’re particularly interested in and we have papers at 2 national conferences and the Employability conference at the OU in the coming months,
