Digital Fluency: An agenda for supporting ongoing informal learning for creative practitioners

A NordiCHI 2022 workshop at Aarhus, Denmark. SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2022

The creative industries play an important role in economic, cultural and social life, however, individual creative practitioners and entrepreneurs are often responsible for their own ongoing learning within challenging and ever-evolving digital and technological domains. In addition to formal training, much of the learning creatives undertake is self-directed and informal and involves peer-to-peer support. This one-day workshop will bring together interdisciplinary participants to share experiences of, and to reflect upon, ongoing learning and technology skills acquisition for working creatives. Participants will work together to examine ideas, strategies and experiences around digital fluency, literacy and confidence, particularly as they relate to creative entrepreneurs and practitioners. The outcome of the workshop will be a contribution towards research frameworks and agendas, along with new collaborations.
