Webinar series: Developing digital curricula and competencies (DCC) in Higher Education
What are digital competencies? How is education affected by digitalisation? And most importantly, how can Higher Education embed digital competencies and tools in the curricula and teaching practices? Learn more about the digitalisation of the curricula in Higher Education at a webinar series hosted by the CED and the Danish project Digital Curriculum.
Digitalisation affects all disciplines in Higher Education. Texts and images are being digitized. Advanced simulations are changing the way we understand and teach problem-solving for instance in financial markets and supply chains. Social media platforms are born digital, and the amounts of data they produce calls for quantitative approaches in analyses. It is likely that you can easily come up with examples from your field of research and teaching.
Generally speaking, there are two primary drivers or motivators for the need to digitally upgrade the degree programmes of the university in order to equip future candidates with adequate digital knowledge, skills, and competencies:
- Development within research fields
- Developments in employers' demands for new skills
But how should we deal with it in the curriculum? What are digital competencies? Moreover, how can Higher Education embed digital competencies and tools in the curricula and the teaching practices?
The DCC series aims to offer a guided tour through a range of principal curricular and didactic questions generated from the digitalisation of the disciplines.
The series is hosted by the CED and the Danish project Digital Curriculum, which aims to accelerate and support the development of digital knowledge, digital methods and digital competencies required in the disciplines of higher education.
Each webinar is from 10:00 to 12:00 and includes a lecture and workshop.
