The Digital Literacy for Academic Purposes Training Suite project worked with staff and students to create an interactive online learning resource to teach students how to use the internet in a smart and responsible way, in particular focusing on finding reliable research sources and highlighting shortcuts to allow more accurate searching.

To learn more about the project, including lessons learned along the way, please take a look at the video case study submitted by Alicia Hughes-White, the student digital ambassador for the Digital Literacy for academic purposes project.
