This page is for students who are completing the short Digital Identity and Wellbeing course during induction in September 2023. It lists the aims of the course, the way it will be delivered, and the learning outcomes.
This short course on Digital Identity and Wellbeing is part of digital capabilities being embedded in your learning at the Business School. The learning is comprised of two stages which can be studied in any order.
The digitally enhanced resource that you can study independently in your own time enables you to gain an awareness of how to manage your online identity, and manage your digital safety and privacy. This includes a self-assessment of your digital footprint, how to set boundaries and limits around your use of technology, including social media, privacy, and wellbeing concerns that impact you and others.
A complementary face-to-face workshop enables you to explore practical steps to construct and maintain a positive digital identity, and enables you to share your ideas of good practice when managing everyday digital health and wellbeing.
Learning outcomes are the things that you should be able to do once you have completed both parts of this course. They enable you to reflect on how well you have understood the learning materials.
At the end of the course you will be able to:
- Identify different types of online identity and recognise behaviours that can affect those identities.
- Appraise your existing online digital footprint and judge its suitability for different networks.
- Recognise how to construct online profiles that project a positive digital identity, both personally and professionally.
- Identify digital safety, privacy, and well-being concerns that impact yourself and others.
- Investigate and appraise techniques or platforms that can support your own digital well-being and privacy.
