Digital Capabilities

Project overview

The digital capabilities and credentials project will provide students, faculty, and staff with an opportunity to adopt a practice of continual digital capabilities development as part of a well-rounded lifelong learning pursuit. 

We propose to achieve this by developing a common framework to help map out the various types of capabilities that are necessary in order to acquire and maintain useful levels of digital skills for specific academic, administrative, and professional roles. 

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

Using the framework, we will then pilot an online self-assessment tool so that every member of the community can accurately gauge their current level of proficiency and be directed towards resources to improve in the areas where they need it most.

Background info

While all members of our community have varying degrees of confidence when it comes to their current digital capabilities, all of them recognize the need to continually develop these skills in a meaningful and focused way and would like Concordia to support them in this activity.
