Instruction By Design: The Competencies of Digital Literacy

Instruction by Design Podcast

In this episode, the instructional designers from Academic Innovation (Celia Coochwytewa, Aaron Kraft, and Jinnette Senecal) discuss the term “digital literacy” and explore the layers of meaning behind it. We then explore critical issues related to digital literacy and the higher education environment such as benchmarks, personal interest, and legal/ethical use of technology. In closing, we deliberate on a letter submitted by an IBD listener who is curious about how educators with minimal instructional design support/resources might successfully navigate their own professional development paths.
