Digital capability Framework

Framing digital capabilities for staff – deliverables

Now that these deliverables from the ‘framework’ project have been nicely designed by Jisc, I can share them with everyone who has been involved – and with those of you who are just interested to know more.

Apart from the six elements themselves – which have been through an extensive process of consultation – the remaining resources are examples of what could be done with the six elements and are not meant to be definitive. Feel free to adapt and adopt them to your own setting. Further blog posts will follow about embedding these outcomes institutionally, and about the work that is ongoing with Jisc’s partner organisations.
