GLACC - CCD Requirement - Digital Literacy and Communication

WORK IN PROGRESS - Appendix to the GLACC Pedagogical Document

AUP Context: GLACC Requirements in 2019-20

"Digital Literacy and Communication" is one of the five degree requirements for the GLACC = Global Liberal Arts Core Curriculum.

2019-20: The GLACC Committee is currently working, for each of the 5 requirements, on producing 3 documents: 1) Document for Chairs/Departments, 2) Pedagogical Document for all faculty (non prescriptive), and 3) Form to request course coding in DL.

This LibGuide is intended to accompany the "Pedagogical Document" for Faculty. Its main purpose at the moment is to list digital tools of interest for Faculty, discipline specific or not.

Although this guide is maintained by the Library the idea is that its content be a collaborative work. We encourage faculty to make suggestions and provide feedback on the tools you used, liked or didn't like so that everyone benefit from this budding inventory.

AUP - Digital Literacy and Communication Requirement: LOs

Digital Literacy courses teach skills in digital collaboration, writing and publishing, data management and preservation, data analysis and presentation, and research – as well as the ethics and implications of these practices. Students will enhance their ability to use a range of digital tools and technology-enabled methodologies.

Learning Outcomes  
In all courses coded DL students:

  • Will be able to write and publish digitally and analyze and produce audiovisual content in order to communicate through a variety of digital media.
  • Will learn about privacy, security and data preservation issues.  
  • Will be able to interpret, report, and synthesize data and present it in various formats visually.
  • Will be able to formulate appropriate problems in a way that allows a computer to help solve them; you will have familiarity with automating these solutions through the implementation of algorithms, code or programmes.
