Doing it for ourselves: a collaborative approach to building digital literacy tools.

In March 2016 UTS Library launched a series of online learning modules called HeadsUp, which was the culmination of a year of intensive work by librarians in the Information Services Department. The modules cover a variety of academic literacies and study skills relevant to first year students. Rather than hiring someone external to make these modules, we decided to take a more ambitious DIY approach, and make them ourselves. This strategy allowed us to build increasingly important digital literacy skills among our staff, and has allowed us to continue developing those skills since the launch. Join the webinar conversation with Jemima McDonald to find out moree about how this DIY approach has contributed to building staff digital literacies at UTS.
