Are you involved with developing, teaching, or participating in your institution’s digital literacy initiatives/programs? Are you interested in helping us explore how the acquisition of digital literacy skills impacts students after they graduate college?¬†This spring, the NMC is conducting research into the impact of higher education digital literacy programs and experiences on the success of recent graduates of undergraduate programs (one-to-two years post-graduation) in the workforce.¬†This research will contribute to the body of knowledge used by the higher education community to inform strategic planning around digital literacy initiatives.

As part of this project, the NMC is creating a survey targeted to recent graduates and is seeking colleges and universities to help disseminate the survey to recent graduates during April-May 2017. If you participate, the NMC will provide you with email text to make it as easy as possible to send out the survey. UPDATE: The survey is ready for dissemination! The target survey close date is May 17, 2017.

The results of the survey will be published under a Creative Commons license in an NMC Horizon Project Strategic Brief.

BENEFITS FOR PARTICIPATING:

  • You and your institution’s participation will be gratefully acknowledged in the published work.
  • You will have early access to the survey data.
  • You will have an opportunity to share info about your digital literacy initiatives for potential inclusion in the report as an institutional exemplar.

Can we count you in?
