The University of Queensland Student Strategy 2016-2020 aims to create ‘game-changing graduates’ with the skills to succeed in the 21st century workplace. The strategy acknowledges the disruptions that have occurred in education and the workplace due to the increased use of digital technologies. 

Information and digital literacy strategic framework

To respond to the changing needs of students as they learn, work and live in the digital environment the University of Queensland Library developed the Information and Digital Literacy Strategic Framework, 2016 - 2020 (PDF, 3.8 MB). The framework defines digital literacy as the core capabilities which fit an individual for living, learning and working in contemporary society.

Digital literacy project (June-November 2018)

In order to embed the framework, the Library has initiated a project to design and develop a variety of digital literacy resources to supplement other programs run by the Library. The project aims to:

  • co-create online learning modules with UQ students (as part of the UQ student staff partnerships program) to develop the digital capabilities students need to thrive within UQ and beyond
  • raise awareness of the importance of digital literacy within the UQ Library and wider UQ community.

See the Digital literacy project for more information.
