There is a need to prepare students for the increasingly complex demands of both higher education and the professional workplace in the digital age. A successful undergraduate student today is expected to leave university with extensive digital literacy skills associated with learning, research, information management and associated communication and collaboration skills. This course provides students with an introduction to those core learning literacies and related digital practice skills that are necessary for successful engagement with contemporary university undergraduate study and the professional workplace. Central to this course is the concept that students should be able to manage their own learning, and develop investigative strategies that will enable them to adjust to the rapidity of change within 21st century digital technology environments.

The course guides students through a series of topics and learning activities, which will facilitate the development of the digital skills necessary for successful transition into contemporary university studies, enabling students to become competent and autonomous learners in the digital age. Based on the discovery, capture, evaluation and application of Open Educational Resources, the course will encompass the use of digital tools to participate in computer supported collaborative networks. Embedded within the pedagogy of the course will be the theme of student self-regulation of studying and learning, including an emphasis on the personal assessment of academic self-efficacy associated reflective practice and resilience.
