Abstract

This study aimed to examine Chinese medical educators' ICT and digital literacy awareness in an international joint health programme. An online survey was used to investigate the Chinese medical educators' current situation and their challenges on the development of digital literacy in practice. The results show that medical educators' occupations and the lengths of usage of computers have a significant influence on the web search skills. A majority of participants are aware of digital technologies and interested in using them but fewer are confident to use them to design teaching and learning resources online (16.9%) to meet students' needs. A lack of institutional funding, insufficient ICT training programme and resources are found as major factors for enhancing Chinese medical educators' digital literacy skills. Barriers and opportunities are also discussed for arousing instructional attention in facilitating medical educators to improve their digital literacy skills.
