Our vision on digital awareness and the proposal to make it a new competence in higher education was published at the JITEL 2021 Network Engineering Conference.
As a result of the world’s population being much more digitally connected, it is increasingly relevant to acquire an adequate level of digital awareness. For this reason, the objective of this work is to introduce the competence of digital awareness in higher education programs.
Specifically, this work is focused on the deployment of such competence within the Degree in Network Engineering of the Castelldefels School of Telecommunications and Aerospace Engineering of the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya. To do this, we ` have planned a project structured in four phases in which the tasks to be carried out by the different participants have been defined in detail.
Thus, the roles involved are: project coordinator, academic content designers, support companies for this implementation, students, as well as the Degree Coordinator and the Deputy Director of Master’s Studies and Head of Quality. This is the first initiative we plan to extend to other grades or levels of study in the future.
