discourse; Deakin University Library research and practice
Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to announce the publication of our new series discourse: Deakin University Library research and practice.

discourse provides an open channel for the development of ideas, bridging the divide between formative Library working documents and final peer-reviewed works. The topics covered present critical analysis and deep thinking on important issues within our industry and the broader higher education environment.

Deakin’s adoption of Graduate Learning Outcomes and roll out of a significant program of Course Enhancement led to the Library commissioning two publications now featured in discourse. These papers present a review of higher education literature on digital literacy, current to end of 2012. The first paper investigates definitions of digital literacy and the second is a preliminary investigation of digital literacy in academic settings. This research has been applied to our work in developing academic capabilities and students digital literacy skills for the Deakin University community.

No. 1 2015, Towards an understanding of ‘Digital Literacy(ies)’, Pauline Hagel http://dro.deakin.edu.au/view/DU:30073198

No. 2 2015, What is good practice in the development, assessment and evaluation of digital literacy for graduate employability?, Pauline Hagel

I hope that you find these issues informative and feel free to share with your colleagues. I welcome your feedback on any of the papers in discourse and your discussion on the topics that they raise.

Yours sincerely,
Sue Owen
Interim University Librarian
