• Digital Capabilities

    The key question this project asks is: What core digital capabilities do I need as an academic member of staff to achieve my vision of an inclusive and transformative student digital experience?

    "We have a responsibility to our students to provide the digital experiences they expect and to support them in acquiring the Brookes attribute of Digital and Information Literacy."

    How confident are you:

    • in using University core systems such as Moodle and Turnitin?
    • in using technology to transcend text in your course materials with images, sound, and video to ensure learning needs are met?
    • in evaluating new technologies and resources for teaching and learning?

    Which digital capabilities are particularly important for your specific professional role?

    All academic staff, in the course of AY 2017-2018,
    are invited to take part in a survey of current staff digital capabilities using a diagnostic tool that facilitates the creation of their own individual professional profiles. The diagnostic tool gives staff an immediate summary of their responses including relevant links to a wide range of training and resources in a brand-new course in Moodle (currently being piloted).

    Brookes DC aggregates a variety of training and resource opportunities that will help you develop practical digital skills: such as setting up assignments in Feedback Studio, implementing the new Blue Card system, and best practice guidelines for inclusivity and Web Accessibility.

  • A baseline set of Digital Capabilities

    We have a responsibility to our students to provide the digital experiences they expect and to support them in acquiring the Brookes attribute of Digital and Information Literacy.

      What digital capabilities should staff have to ensure we achieve this?
      What would an appropriate baseline for staff digital capabilities look like and how can it be measured and assessed?

    Digital technologies permeate all areas of our work so our ability to use them must be multi-faceted. For simplicity’s sake we have broken digital capabilities down into 6 core areas for academic staff.
