Working Party Hot Spots



  1. To define the digital literacy requirements of staff (academic and professional) in member institutions.
  2. To develop a set of guiding principles reinforcing the importance of improving digital literacy in higher education participants.
  3. To develop a framework, suitable for use on an ongoing basis, for describing standards of digital literacy
  4. Conduct a periodic review, as appropriate, to meet changing needs.


As a result of intensive discussion, CAUDIT Members identified four major areas requiring increased focus during 2014.  These were:

Develop a national standard for basic digital technology literacy and skills in higher education and identifying best practices and case studies for up skilling and technology learning in higher education.

Initiating, establishing and maintaining Partnerships and Engagement with undergraduate and postgraduate/research students, academic and professional staff and external agencies with best practices and case studies identified.

The deployment and management of wireless technology across campuses and identifying best practices and case studies to meet the highly expectant demands of all the key players – undergraduate and postgraduate students, researchers, academic and professional staff.

ICT support and services for university researchers identifying best practice models and case studies of university research support.

CAUDIT established working groups to visit these themes and identify where CAUDIT can provide support relating to tech-solutions/outcomes/resource materials that would assist Australian and New Zealand Institututions to better deliver their strategic goals in these key areas.

Reports from each working party were tabled at the 2014 Spring Members Meeting and can be viewed by clicking on the link above or by searching the theme in the CAUDIT Resources page
