4.3 Digital Literacy in Higher Education

43 Teachers using ICTJISC, (Joint Information Systems Committee) has evolved since 2002 to take the lead role in supporting UK educational organisations at a local, national and international level while at the same time seeing digital literacy as a ‘responsibility of the whole education and wider society as a means to economic success and social inclusion’, (JISC 2011).

As an organisation, JISC provides ‘resources, knowledge and expertise to support colleges and universities’ and therefore has, as its priority, the capabilities that are required and/or developed in those contexts: ICT/computer literacy; information literacy; media literacy; digital scholarship: academic, professional and research practices; independent study; and, personal and professional development planning (JISC 2011)
