The Centre for Open Education Practice facilitates and promotes access to a series of free online courses to promote digital literacies using the OERu’s ‘Learning in a Digital Age’ micro courses.
Learning in a Digital Age is a sequence of free, online micro-courses through which university and polytechnic students can build the digital literacies needed to succeed with learning on the Internet. The 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.
Join the inaugural New Zealand cohort starting 31 July 2019
We extend an open invitation to all New Zealand students to participate in one or more of the micro-courses commencing on 7 August 2019.
