Digital Fluency

Increasingly, institutions are moving beyond “digital literacy” or “information literacy” and into a “digital fluency.” At the University of Mary Washington, we define digital fluency as the ability to consume and produce digital knowledge critically, ethically, and responsibly, as well as creatively adapt to emerging technology.

Rather than a simple addition to the curriculum, digital fluency must be incorporated into the student’s overall educational experience. Most efforts thus far on campuses to incorporate digital fluency have been either as add-ons (institutes, centers, small pilot initiatives) or localized in specific programs and departments. The goal of this one-day workshop is to brainstorm and begin to develop ways to integrate digital fluency into your course and your curriculum, as well as share ways to advocate for these kinds of learning outcomes to be more fully integrated.
