Abstract: Learner-Generated Digital Media (LGDM) has been an essential part of teaching, learning and assessment practices in Higher Education for more than a decade. Notwithstanding, the field is still considered under-theorised, under-researched and in its infancy. Research studies of LGDM have been mainly qualitative, and implementations of LGDM have rarely been underpinned with systematic approaches that take into account factors such as the training needs of students and appropriate rubrics. Empirical findings from research on LDGM have tended to have limited generalisability, due to the majority of studies drawing on relatively small sample sizes. This paper aims to propose a framework, ...
