Enhancing students' digital fluency and employability: a collaboration between UCC Library, UCC Skills Centre and the UCC Graduate Attributes Programme
This poster will showcase a collaborative initiative between UCC Library, Graduate Attributes Programme (GAP), and the Skills Centre. To promote UCC Graduate Attributes and Values and to address the increasing demand for the development of digital skills, we created a series of innovative workshops held in the technology-rich Digital Scholarship Studio on Q+1 of Boole Library focused on visual communication, podcasting and audio editing, video editing, and digital accessibility. The workshops are open to all UCC students, regardless of discipline, and are designed to empower students with essential digital skills that will contribute to their skill set and employability. Attendance in these workshops can count towards the UCC EmployAgility Award, a professional skills development programme that rewards students for their non-academic contributions. The poster will highlight the different workshops as well as outline how they align with Graduate Attributes and Values and how technology in the Digital Scholarship Studio is used to enhance the overall teaching and learning experience.
