Developing the Digital Curriculum
Most students arrive in higher education with a reasonable level of proficiency in using digital devices (though by no means all). Many have encountered digital resources and tools at school or in employment. But the university curriculum is where, uniquely, they develop advanced digital study and research skills, where they encounter professional practices with digital technologies, and where they learn to judge digital media with academic rigour. All the evidence shows that students' digital capability advances most when they are engaged in activities that are meaningful in the context of their chosen course of study.
Resources developed by the Exeter Cascade project can help teachers and curriculum teams to support students' digital development. Explore these links for ideas, learning activities, and repurposable materials.
