Educating for Digital Futures: What the Learning Strategies of Digital Media Professionals Can Teach Higher Education
This paper investigates how universities might engage more effectively with the imperative to develop students’ twenty-first century skills for the information society. It examines learning challenges and professional learning strategies of successful digital media professionals. The results of this study assert that the university maintains an important place in professional learning, particularly for the acquisition of generic/transferable capabilities such as critical thinking. However, the universities need to consider new pedagogic affordances of digital technology in the educational space. The author concludes that this study used the learning challenges and strategies of digital media professionals to investigate what students in the information society should be learning, and how they learn best in the digital age.
