The developing digital literacies programme (2011-2013) set out to explore institutional approaches to digital literacy development in universities and colleges.
The 12 institutional projects and 10 professional associations involved worked across a range of stakeholder groups: students, academic staff, teachers, researchers, librarians, administrators, technical staff, support staff and senior managers. The knowledge and resources from the programme have been shared progressively.
The digital literacies programme built on a background of Jisc-funded work into learner literacies and strategic approaches to their development and support. This work can be explored through the digital literacies page on the UK web archive. The projects which were part of the programme included those run by universities, colleges, and professional associations, and are listed on the archived page.

Our earlier work in this field, the learning literacies in a digital age (LLiDA) project, defined the literacies needed for effective 21st century learning. A follow-up project, supporting effective learners in a digital age (SLiDA), explored institution-wide strategies for effective learning support with technology.
