Micro-credentials created and delivered at RMIT University are aligned to competencies that prepare graduates for work and life. Digital Literacy has been identified as one of several transferable skills required for a changing world of work. RMIT University Library, in collaboration with the central RMIT Creds team and a designated learning designer, has been involved in the development and delivery of a formal suite of ten digital literacy micro-credentials. With expertise in navigating, accessing, utilising and evaluating digital information and associated tools, the Library is providing leadership and support in an area already disrupting conventional modes of training and instruction.
