Student partnerships focus on embedding digital skills into the MVLS curriculum

Undergraduate students from across MVLS have engaged in a digital skills enhancement project.  Students from the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry and Nursing, Veterinary Medicine ‌and Life Sciences were invited to participate in the Digital Identity survey.  The results identified key topics on which students want more guidance, including digital identity management, professionalism in an online environment, digital wellbeing, productivity skills (including management of digital distractions), and communication and collaboration online.

40 student partners from across the schools worked in collaboration with staff, focusing on potential challenges, solutions, and opportunities for curriculum developments in these areas.  Face-to-face and online teaching resources are being created based on their insights. These resources will be embedded into the Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, Veterinary Medicine and Life Sciences curricula.
