Back in the day, being computer literate was a specifically highlighted skill or requirement in job descriptions for a broad range of positions. Now, the requirement is digital literacy.

  • What it is, and why it is important
  • How it is different from computer literacy
  • The digital/data literacy programme offered by the CSOD; and
  • How CSOD might evolve within the context of the future of work.
