All Aboard, a collaboration between NUIG, the University of Limerick, UCD and MIC, aims to identify the wide range of skills and knowledge needed by students, and by all those who work in higher education, to feel confident and creative when learning, working and exploring the digital world.
UL’s Glucksman Library, most especially Liz Dore, faculty librarian for Education and Health Sciences, had particular responsibility for the output of the initial phase of the project, a review and synthesis of a range of existing papers, policies and frameworks relating to digital skills and information literacy with a focus on higher education. This report has now been published.
As well as providing a comprehensive review, the report summarises the development of a practicable draft framework for Irish Higher Education and presents the working model for the subsequent activities of the All Aboard project, including resource development and the piloting of digital badges.
