- Are you reluctant to participate online because you aren’t sure how what is expected of you?
- Do you want to understand how the human rights we value in the physical world apply in the digital sphere?
- Do you want to learn more about some of the controversies surrounding digital rights issues?
If you answered ‘YES’ to at least one of these questions then Digital Rights and Responsibilities is for you.
Digital Rights and Responsibilities recognises that just as a citizen in a democratic society understands they have the right to freedom of opinion and expression and the responsibility to be respectful to others while doing so, a responsible digital citizen must also be aware of their rights and responsibilities online so they can participate with confidence in digital spaces.
This course will benefit all library and information professionals who want to understand the expected norms and behaviours of digital environments and some of the controversial issues surrounding digital rights.
This course focuses on the civic element of digital literacy and can be taken in conjunction with other digital literacy courses, or on its own.
This course is delivered online and is self-paced.
