INFS6060: Digital Work Practices

Digital technologies are changing the way we work, how we present ourselves online, and how we manage and organize ourselves and others. In this unit, students learn about new and emerging digital work practices. Students acquire individual-level skills needed to be successful in the world of digital work. We analyse how, as professionals, we best present ourselves online; and how others, including clients and employers, look at digital self-presentation. We also explore new digital forms of working and organizing at the collective level: the new digital, flexible, and networked work practices emerging in modern workplaces. Students engage in hands-on activities to learn how to navigate digital work successfully, how to present themselves professionally in digital media, and how to design, coordinate, and manage digital work practices.
