The NCVER 'Good Practice Guide' on Teaching Digital Skills tells us "... digital skills adoption and utilisation is needed to facilitate and support the digital skills capability development of VET educators..."

Together with information out of the AISC and the Joyce Report, and general sector trends, it is categorically understood that all Certificate IV TAE graduates must have good digital literacy skills. They need to have them to complete their own job function but importantly, to ensure all VET trainers are equipped with the 'new basic skillset' known as digital skills

So, how do we ensure this critical skill set is being developed in all our students?

This one hour session with Allison Miller asks (and answers) the following key points:

  • Why worry about developing digital literacy for Cert IV TAE students?
  • What are the digital literacy skills Cert IV TAE students need to graduate with?
  • What technology skills do trainers need?
  • How do we pre-empt digital literacy gaps in potential Cert IV TAE students?
  • What strategies can we use to develop digital literacy skills in students?

Whilst framed in consideration of the skills trainers of trainers need to know and pass on, this session is packed with relevant information for all VET trainers. It also gives more than ten practical strategies you can implement today to support the development of students' digital literacy skills!

This is a must have PD session for TAE industry currency
