    Syllabus

    Contemporary knowledge and information workers require a range of information and digital literacies, including increasing levels of media literacy. This unit explores the concepts of information and digital literacy and their practice across a range of educational, workplace and other environments. Students are introduced to the broad information literacies required to analyse information needs and identify, locate, evaluate, manage and use information for problem solving, decision making and research, before examining the digital literacies required in a contemporary information environment, including working knowledge of computer and communication technologies, the Web and a range of digital devices used to find, use, create and communicate information. Students are expected to reflect on how information and digital literacies can be applied in relation to information practices within their own specific information environments.

    Learning Outcomes

    On the successful completion of this unit students will be able to:

    1. Conduct a critical review of the information and digital literacies required in contemporary information practices;

    2. Develop a deeper understanding of the benefits of information and digital literacies in decision making and problem solving;

    3. Evaluate the use of a range of digital devices in contemporary information practices; and

    4. Reflect critically on how information and digital literacies can be applied to their own information practices.
