Digital Sustainability

On DTCE we are working to integrate digital sustainability across all of our course units as we see it as of central importance in our teaching and research.

 

Digital sustainability has different meanings. It can refer to digital learning design that is adaptive to change, considerate of the learning contexts in which it is used and where there is a long-term vision for the use and design of digital learning resources.

 

Increasingly digital sustainability is also understood in terms of the role the digital can play both in addressing social and environmental challenges, and in tackling its negative social and environmental impact. You can find out about some of these impacts in this well designed youtube video:

 

 

You might also be interested in the following presentation created for the DTCE course Educating for Sustainability https://tinyurl.com/y6plpv5v (with appreciation and thanks to Libo Yang, DTCE Student 2019/20).

 

On the programme you’ll gain understandings and skills relating to digital sustainability that will be useful in enhancing learning, in integrating social and environmental sustainability into learning and communication contexts and in reducing the negative social and environmental impact of digital technologies. We think these are key skills that will open opportunities for graduates to make contributions both to learning and to helping address the sustainability challenges the world is facing.
