Siriwatchana Kaeophanuek, Jaitip Na-Songkhla, and Prachyanun Nilsook

Abstract—This research aims to study Thai university library and information sciences instructors’ and students’ opinions on teaching and learning environments for the development of digital literacy skills. The research tools included digital literacy self-assessment and in-depth interviews. The findings indicate that 400 students from across Thailand considered their abilities for digital tools usage good and that they considered their information and digital transformation skills to be at an intermediate level. Interviews with the instructors revealed information about teaching environments, problems and obstacles, and the interviews indicated alternative methods for Information Sciences students’ digital literacy development.

Index Terms—Digital literacy, instructional design, information sciences, higher education.
