Certificate in Digital Capabilities and the Learner Experience

Programme Purpose

In this proposed micro-credential programme, the learner will explore the dynamic relationship between technological innovation, education and technology-enhanced learning in an online, bite-sized manner. They will explore the policy context for the development of technology-enhanced learning in relevant Irish sectors, and the use of digital capability frameworks to inform and structure practice. Through engagement with the technologies that support blended delivery, practitioners will critically reflect on the learner experience and use these technologies to collaborate with other practitioners. In this manner, the proposed programme will develop the practitioner’s understanding of the environment in which developing digital practices are embedded. Overall, the proposed programme aims to enhance the practitioner’s capability to extend professional practice goals through the use of digital technologies, and to develop strategies to facilitate learners’ digital capabilities. The programme will lead to a Special Purpose Award at Level 7 on the National Framework of Qualifications. It will consist of one module worth 10 ECTS (i.e., 250 hours of learner effort).
