Developing your Digital Skills (Students) - Webinar
From Andrew Kirk
Do you want to update your digital skills but aren't sure where to start?
This interactive online workshop is based on the University's Digital Skills Framework, a tool to help staff and students evaluate their current levels of digital capability, reflect on development needs, plan their development path and find resources to help develop their skills.
We'll start by looking at what digital skills are, and how the Framework categorises these into six areas. We'll then look at tools for assessing your current levels of digital capability, and identifying areas in which to develop your skills to help you study, research, teach and work. This will form the basis of your skills development plan. The last section of the workshop highlights the Resource Finder tool that you can use to search over 700 digital skills courses and resources for developing your skills.
By the end of the workshop, you will have assessed your current levels of digital capability, identified at least one area for development and found resources that will help you develop these skills.
