Digital literacies at Swinburne
The best way to learn is to do. That’s why we encourage both students and staff to take on projects that arouse their creativity and self-expression within a digital literacy setting.
Adobe Creative Cloud applications are used to create innovative responses to assessment tasks and to tell personal stories in an engaging way. Projects explore social, economic and environmental impact through authentic engagement with real world issues.
