Abstract

The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy of the design of a first year introduction to digital fluency course primarily for a library and information technology cohort at a Canadian university using an educational action research method and apply the findings to the second question-plan-observe-evaluate cycle of the action research process in order to improve the next iteration of the course Results include 1) recommendations to adopt a more suitable textbook, 2) use strategies recommended for cohort learning and, 3) reconceptualization of ‘digital fluency’ from a computer science principles perspective to a plurality of digital literacies as conceptualized in contemporary literature
