digitally literate person in the Faculty of Engineering and Design should be proficient in retrieving, managing, evaluating, sharing, presenting relevant information, supported by access to the appropriate hardware and software. </p><p>I am: I am able to translate digital skills I have learnt to new environment. I am aware of where technology adds value and am able to evaluate appropriate technologies and approaches. I am confident trying new things and taking risks in the digital environment. I am aware of where to source information on how new technologies might influence my practice. I am accountable and responsible in my activity and behaviour online. I am able to manage both the risks and the flexibility of working digitally. I am able: I understand the ethical and legal implications of using digitised content (e.g. plagiarism, copyright, data protection). I interpret and analyse data from experiments. I am aware of work/life balance, clearly separating my social and work digital activity and respecting when others have done so. I clearly set expectations of my working practice in the digital environment so that others are aware how and when to best communicate with me. I choose an appropriate and effective means of communication for the audience, technology and environment. I have an awareness of standard practices when working in a digital environment. I provide information (reports, presentations) in a clear, understandable, appropriate format and choose a suitable means of delivery. I use a media rich approach when appropriate. I can effectively use social networks (e.g. LinkedIn) I take an active part in online activities (e.g. VLE: Moodle, wikis, forums, online submission). I am confident communicating in a group online (e.g. discussion forum). I collaborate with others (students, staff, and colleagues): sharing files and information, reviewing and group-working online. I keep up-to-date with industry use of digital technologies. I manage my own personal learning environment. I have an understanding of different operating systems (Windows, Mac, Unix) and how they might impact on the digital experience and working practices. I convey ideas, opinions and emotions in ways that avoid misinterpretation. I can: I can proficiently search for, evaluate and manage digital information from a variety of sources (Web of Science, IEEE, Google Scholar etc). I can present my work (in presentations, diagrams) in different environments and formats to express my thoughts and findings. I can use a database to store, search and extract information. I can use a VLE (Moodle) to access lecture notes, recorded lectures, problem sheets, mock exams, links to other resources. I can to represent formulae and mathematical working (e.g. using Latex). I can independently problem solve technical issues and know where to source help. I can understand and use different platforms. I can type with proficient keyboard skills that do not hinder my learning or speed of working. I can work with large files and projects. I can effectively manage my files and email. I can program and use software to create and modify models (Matlab, Maple, Latex, C&amp;T etc.) I can collect data from experiments. I can analyse data from experiments (using Excel, Matlab, spectrophotometry, HPLC, Labview etc). I can produce sketches/drawings/plans in digital formats. I can navigate and use University systems. I can use computational fluid dynamics (CFD), piping and instrumental diagrams (P&amp;IDs) and Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) I have access to: </p><p> Basic IT skills training. Reliable hardware and software tools. University systems My resources and software/systems from various locations e.g. on/off campus - (e.g. not all software is available via VPN). Licenced industry standard software. Systems/software not managed by the University (e.g. offsite, external services) with the ability to negotiate access and support. Equality of access not hampered by any technical ability, disability, location/geography. </p><p>Functional Access </p><p>Skills </p><p>(personal capabilities) </p><p>Practices </p><p>(ways of thinking and acting) </p><p>Attributes </p><p>Identities </p></li><li><p>Embedding digital literacies in the curriculum:a model</p><p>Read through the modelConsider what kind of outcomes are relevant to students in your contextOver tea/coffee discuss what aspirations you have for students as digital scholars, professionals, workers, or citizensPair up if you can with someone in your subject or professional area (for the next part of the workshop)</p><p>tea/coffee</p></li><li><p>Embedding digital literacies: three activities and some recommendations</p><p>Digital Blooms TaxonomyHybrid Learning ActivitiesDigital Literacy Design ChecklistDeveloping recommendations for Liverpool</p></li><li><p>Digitally literate learning outcomes</p><p>Scan the digital version of Blooms taxonomyChoose an outcome or activity that you can imagine running with your studentsDiscuss with your partner: What would be the potential benefits?
