Digital Literacy Skills Audit
Posted by andrewey on February 24, 2011
As part of our PEDL project we have developed a skills audit to give a baseline measure of the digital literacy skills of both our peer e-guides and their student cohorts. The e-guides and learners will retake the skills audit at the end of the project to measure the distance travelled.
We wanted a skills audit which was brief , simple to complete but which also indicated future training needs. We found the style of the skills audit used by Salford University ideal. We have now produced our own set of questions, based around the definition of Digital Literacy we are using, covering:
- Use of College network ICT services
- Digital skills for learning – use of common application software
- Information finding skills
- Referencing and plagiarism
- Web 2.0 technologies
We are currently piloting the audit but aim to make it available online to learners for September.
