Current trends towards networked communities and digital citizenship, as well as workplace changes including distributed/collaborative work patterns and an (arguably) higher value being placed on 'knowledge' work, all make digital capabilities central to what postgraduate education can offer. While efforts are being made to support students' ICT and information skills – or at least bring these up to a minimum standard of competence – we argue that these are not being followed through the postgraduate experience in a coherent way, or integrated with the development of other capabilities critical to higher learning. Universities are typically not focused on producing researchers who can investigate, study and learn in technology-rich environments. In this session we will explores the nature of digital literacies and implications for researcher development. The presentation is based on a theoretical review of the literature as part of the Learning Literacies for a Digital Age study carried out by Allison Littlejohn, Helen Beetham and Lou McGill (available from http://www.academy.gcal.ac.uk/llida/)
