Concordia’s Digital Capabilities project team is inviting the university community to take part in an online pilot self-assessment. Part of Concordia’s digital strategy initiatives, it aims to provide students, faculty and staff with a more comprehensive understanding of their own digital capability strengths and weaknesses.

The project will also offer the community an opportunity to adopt a practice of continual digital capabilities development as part of a well-rounded lifelong learning pursuit.

By completing this pilot self-assessment, members of the Concordia community will be better equipped to accurately gauge their level of digital skills across 12 different dimensions within a digital capabilities framework. These include problem-solving, digital resources for learning, communication and personal and professional empowerment.

The framework will be available as a reference tool when articulating skillsets, developing academic requirements and identifying professional development goals.

In addition to obtaining their proficiency level results (strengths and weaknesses) for each of these 12 dimensions, participants will also receive a list of resources that they can explore to improve their digital skills in the areas they think would benefit them the most.

Participation in the digital capabilities self-assessment is voluntary and will take about 10 minutes to complete.

Results and feedback will remain confidential. You can access the survey now until March 23.

Participation and feedback in this pilot self-assessment will provide valuable information about the Concordia community’s experience with digital technology to help improve the practice of continual digital skills development.
