Digital skills in the workplace - ACE Conference 2018.pdf

In this workshop Anne and colleague Dr Nicky Murray will: discuss the importance of digital skills for learning, life and work in the 21st Century; workshop a digital skills framework that describes digital practices in workplace literacy and numeracy programmes; and look for ideas on how to further the work around developing the digital skills of workplace learners.

Anne Alkema is the Skills Highway Research Manager at the Industry Training Federation. She has worked in education as a teacher, public servant, researcher, and evaluator. Her main area of research and evaluation is in adult literacy and numeracy where her focus has been on the economic and social impact of New Zealand government policies and the extent to which these policy settings are working for target groups and industries. 

As an adjunct to this work, Anne has helped to develop frameworks of good practice for embedding literacy and numeracy into education and training programmes in tertiary education settings and workplaces. More recently she has provided advice to government on how to build the capability of the foundation teaching sector.
