DLF512: Digital Technologies: Aid and Development

This unit addresses the varied challenges of keeping pace with innovations in digital technology in developmental education and training contexts. It considers how these challenges can be addressed within coherent frameworks that connect contemporary learning theories with established practice in teaching and learning, considering appropriateness and sustainability. In particular, the unit is focused on issues emerging within a global context in which both cultural imperatives and internationalisation agendas require attention. In developing capacity for futures thinking in addressing these issues students will also develop awareness of the changes driving the ongoing international digital revolution, identifying emerging trends and conceiving of plausible futures in which the deployment of digital infrastructures and applying pedagogy can stimulate and sustain learning and provide solutions to local and national needs. Additionally, the dynamics and consequences of international standards development are examined and discussed along with public policy relevant to the future of digital learning. The unit is undertaken online; however, there will be opportunity to meet on Casuarina Campus occasionally for discussion.
