Digital Literacy: Create & Communicate Digital Information
You are a content creator in your personal, academic and professional spheres: you create photos, videos, podcasts, and upload them onto social media platforms; you write blog and social media posts; you write assignment papers and post them onto your institution's virtual learning platforms; you put together research proposals and submit them to funder's online platforms, etc. Knowing how to create content in a responsible manner, acknowledging your sources and sharing your material safely and lawfully are also essential skills of our digital age. Under this capability we are focusing on the following skills:
- Create and manage digital content.
- Apply academic integrity and ethical research principles to the content created.
