Defining Digital Literacy at Oxford Brookes

The framework has been used to underpin the Oxford Brookes definition of digital and information literacy which has been adopted as one of the university’s core graduate attributes in the Strategy for Enhancing the Student Experience (2010).

Here the definition of digital literacy is “The functional access, skills and practices necessary to become a confident, agile adopter of a range of technologies for personal, academic and professional use.”
