Supporting the development of students’ digital literacies, those skills needed for living and working in 21st century, has been recognised as a global issue for higher education (Lee 2014). In the UK context, there has been a spot light on the topic from a range of influential stakeholders and sector wide bodies (House of Lords 2015; NUS n.d; QAA 2015) and has resulted in institutions grappling with their response to the issue (UCISA 2015). In this paper I identify an approach to addressing students’ digital literacies through the use of curriculum design. I draw on the notion of ownership and apply it in three different ways to make the case for this approach.
