Digital Literacy For Researchers

A recent briefing paper by the JISC provides an introduction to digital literacy and what it means to various groups including researchers.

Here at Bath University there has recently been an initiative to address digital literacy for research postgraduate students, focusing on the potential of the Social Web.  The launch event of the Connected Researcher programme featured a seminar on the Social Web followed by hands-on sessions on Twitter and RSS.

It strikes me we might be in a good position to build on this work.
