Course summary

Develop your understanding of Digital Literacy issues on LJMU's distance learning programme and fit your studies around existing commitments.

  • Gain in-depth understanding of UK and international digital literacy issues, practices and policies
  • Develop the skills, principles and practices to use digital tools effectively, safely and ethically
  • Design and lead digital literacy initiatives in schools, universities and other sectors
  • Explore the digital transformation of users, data and practices
  • Benefit from the flexibility of digital learning
  • Modules available as stand-alone, Level 7, 20 credit CPD courses (October, February and June intakes for CPD)

This course offers an opportunity to develop digital literacies beyond the capabilities that are fundamentally underpinned by the technical mastery of digital technologies. More importantly, it considers the digital transformation of users, data and practices.

Digital technologies are playing an increasingly important role in configuring concepts of self, social relationships, communities, embodiment, human-non-human relations, space and place and what counts as social itself. This course will contribute to your professional development by engaging you in the examination of the digital aspects of literacies and learning as they relate to new developments and social change in the family, workplace, education system and economy.

This programme will also enhance your understanding of the informatics-based techniques and computational thinking that are essential to digital literacy and learning. The literacy it offers goes beyond a fluency with digital tools, devices and the Internet. It is characterised by concepts, methods, philosophy of technology and information that emphasise the increasing need to use and access data and information effectively, safely and ethically.

Target awards of Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert - 60 credits) and Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip - 120 credits) are available, alongside standalone 20 credit CPD modules.
