Teaching in Higher Education Volume 16, Number 1, ISSN 1356-2517


This paper is a critical review of some recent literature around the "literacies of the digital" in schools and higher education. It discusses the question: "what does the conjoining of the terms "digital" and "literacy" add to our understanding of teaching and learning in higher education"? It explores the continuing role of critical literacy in relation to the idea that digital literacies are transformative for pedagogy in this sector.
