Students in the SADL: lessons from LSE’s digital literacy programme

Secker, J. (2017). Students in the SADL: lessons from LSE’s digital literacy programme. In: Reedy, K. & Parker, J. (Eds.), Digital Literacy Unpacked. (pp. 83-96). London: Facet Publishing.


This chapter focuses on a three-year digital literacy programme that ran at London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) from 2013-2016, aimed at undergraduate students. The programme scaled up over this period to support students’ digital and information literacies using a student/staff partnership approach. Some of the challenges involved making the programme sustainable and scalable and while it ultimately did not continue, SADL provided inspiration to other institutions in the sector . The chapter provides valuable lessons for anyone working in the field of digital literacy support for students and offers strategies for success including suggestions about how to work in partnership with students.
