OneHE webinar - Students’ everyday life digital mindsets: transitions into higher education
Previous research has found that not all university students are equipped with digital competencies for lifelong learning informed digital citizenship and the digital economy when entering Higher Education. Students transfer into their educational environments self-taught digital behaviours, learned via experiences in everyday life settings. The dichotomy of digital natives and immigrants based on demographics only, is a simplistic way of addressing this issue. There is a need to holistically explore everyday life experiences of students brought into education from an increasingly interconnected and changing everyday life digital world and improve communication and collaboration between academic faculty, the library and academic support units. This webinar will present current research conducted by the presenters to address gaps in this area, via a survey of students’ digital competencies. It will also present the development of a new thematic open group in the OneHE network, ‘Mindsets: Information, Digital and Media Literacy’ which aims to promote a culture of sharing and openness, placing emphasis on fostering international partnerships and collaboration for the digital inclusion of all students.
