Commencing on 7 August 2019, the national Centre for Open Education Practice is offering a series of free online courses to promote digital literacies for all New Zealand tertiary education learners, using the OERu’s Learning in a Digital Age micro-courses. International learners from OERu Outreach Partners and the rest of the world are welcome to join this offering. New Zealand’s UNESCO Chair in OER will facilitate this inaugural offering of these courses online here in Aotearoa New Zealand .
Learning in a Digital Age is a free, online, open education course where university and polytechnic students can build the digital literacies needed to succeed with learning on the Internet. It comprises four micro-courses:
- Digital literacies for online learning (LiDA101)
- Digital citizenship (LiDA102)
- Open education, copyright, and open licensing in a digital world (LiDA103)
- Critical media literacies and associated digital skills (LiDA104)
Learners will be able to earn digital badges and/or certificates of participation. In addition, learners can earn micro-credentials through EduBits and/or be assessed for academic credit towards designated qualifications from OERu partners.
