Summary Equipping business graduates with digital literacy skills can help to enhance their employability and careers. Contextualising digital literacy to the relevant discipline and, aligned with industry expectations can help them navigate through the multiple demands of living, learning and working in a digital 21st century society. This paper draws on a pilot exemplar of the challenges in course design to explicitly embed, develop and assess students on attainment of digital literacy skills in businesseducation. As part of the pilot, and through a cross-functional team, an innovative, media-rich and interactive Digital Literacy Module (DLM) with strong learning design based on authentic activities and scenario-based learning was developed and implemented. Insights presented here will be of value to course leads, curriculum designers, educational technologists and other practitioners to help with embedding digital literacy in higher education.
