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.
