Digital Capability Discovery Tool
The University of Derby is one of fifteen institutions working with Jisc to pilot their Digital Capability Discovery Tool, which has been developed for staff to self-audit and reflect on their digital capabilities. The development of staff and student digital capabilities are of strategic importance to the University so this is an important opportunity for all University staff to take advantage of access to this tool (the pilot is now live until the end of June 2017).
The Discovery Tool will give you the opportunity to find out more about your own digital capability through a series of reflective questions. Completing the questions will give you an opportunity to reflect on your confidence and capability and provide feedback including a summary of your digital profile, suggested actions you can take to build your capability and links to resources that you can use to support your development.
The individual summary will be private to yourself, but it could be useful for developmental conversations, e.g. DPRs, identifying training needs for teams, etc.
As part of the pilot, the University will be provided with an institutional picture of the outcomes, but this will not provide information about individuals. From these institutional results Learning Enhancement (as part of the Digital Derby project) will work alongside other professional service departments to develop additional resources to aid digital capability development. The development of digital capability is a key goal in the new University TEL Strategy 2017-2021 as the foundation for confident and effective use of technology for living, learning and working in a digital society.
