You may not know this, but Deakin Library has teams focusing on both learning experience and digital experience. This helps us create fantastic outcomes in a range of areas: everything from creating strong learning resources to ensuring efficient systems underpin our library services. And so much more!

This DigiBytes blog is managed by an editorial team comprising members from both the Library’s Learning & Teaching (L&T) team and the Digital Experience (DX) team. This blog is an organically developing capacity building project flagging points of interest on the digital literacy – digital fluency spectrum. We aim to present the content as light touch bites with hyperlinks to further information.

Library L&T team

The Library’s Learning and Teaching Team creates innovative learning experiences by collaborating across library and organisational divisions. Deakin’s leadership in digital capability extends throughout the organisation, and this team synthesizes good pedagogical practices and technology to deliver leading edge and engaging experiences. 

Library DX team

The Digital Experience (DX) team works to deliver user-centric experiences that engage and impress students and researchers. We aim to provide consistent, high-quality, scalable digital solutions for library users. We do this through a collaborative, end-to-end approach to identifying, designing and developing and managing experiences. 

Editorial team

Kat Cain

Often found talking about digital fluency or digital learning, Kat is focused on practical skill building for staff and students. The two aspects that bring her the most joy in her work are the relational connections with colleagues and the new learnings or research discussions that emerge organically.

Emeka Anele

Emeka has a strong interest into how diversity can be used to re-shape libraries, as well as how new technologies can aid in library services.
