    Abstract

    This case study describes the development of an open educational resource (OER) designed to support students in the identification, evaluation and development of the digital literacies required for employability in the life and health sciences. The OER prompts students to recognise and evidence their existing attributes and identify areas for development; furthermore, it equips them to articulate their experiences and skills to employers. Embedded in these activities is the use of digital literacies, including information gathering, evaluation and sharing, as well as developing and promoting a professional profile. The resource was developed in partnership with students and is now being deployed and evaluated as part of an extra-curricular activity which students can use for evidence in their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR).
