Bryan Alexander, Samantha Adams Becker, Michele Cummins, Courtney Hall Giesinger, The New Media Consortium, United States
Digital Literacy in Higher Education, Part II: An NMC Horizon Project Strategic Brief is a follow-up to the 2016 strategic brief, supported by Adobe, which explored an increasingly pressing challenge for United States higher education institutions: advancing digital literacy among students and faculty. This second edition aims to examine digital literacy through a global and discipline-specific lens to reveal new contexts that are shaping the way learners create, discover, and critically assess digital content. The NMC’s research examines the current landscape of digital literacy frameworks to illuminate its multiple dimensions — technical, psychological, and interpersonal — around which students’ ability to produce new content generates a sense of empowerment.
