dc.description.abstract This paper describes an 18-month digital learning project, designed to support the development of students’ digital research skills in UCD’s BA and BSocSc programmes. The project involved the creation of six original interactive e-tutorials focusing on key digital research topics, which were embedded in the institutional VLE (Blackboard) in a blended learning structure, and rolled out in four modules in the School of Information & Communication Studies in 2017/2018. During the post-evaluation phase, student feedback was gathered via an online survey and in two qualitative focus groups. This paper outlines the rationale, implementation and results of the project, and offers insights into incorporating digital learning into undergraduate programmes, and student experiences of blended learning. en
