Engagement with digital transformations at all levels of social interaction requires new forms of literacy. This subject provides students with the fundamentals of digital technologies that can be applied in an age of continuous change. It covers the concepts and processes necessary to build digital literacy for change including infrastructure, cloud computing, network administration, information security practices, programming tools, hardware, and software. Students will progress from literacy to the levels of fluency necessary to lead capacity-building programs for digital transformation. The subject explores contemporary technologies such as blockchain, artificial intelligence and machine learning, virtual and augmented reality and mobile telephony.
