Digital Capabilities Toolkit

Based on Jisc's digital capability framework and its supporting resources three toolkits have been developed by the Faculty of Business which focus on the learner, the teacher and the curriculum. To facilitate development of a comprehensive strategy, we recommend utilising all three as a single ‘package’ (examples of how are depicted below) but each is designed for possible stand-alone use.

Learner Toolkit

The Learner Toolkit offers a way to undertake individual digital capabilities self-profiling through the use of an interactive ePortfolio. The process encourages self-reflection and identification of development needs before offering ‘one-stop-shop’ access/signposting to training, development and support. 

How could these be used?

  • deploy to aid in transition to HE for example as part of induction and immersive module
  • embed as part of programme Personal Development Planning strategy
  • use as part of the framework to key stages of personal tutoring

The Learner Toolkit has been created in PebblePad and you can bespoke the toolkit for your discipline. Please contact the FoB Digital Capabilities team (details below) if you are interested in using the toolkit with your students or want to know more about the option to make a bespoke version.

Teacher Toolkit

This toolkit offers academic staff one-stop-shop access to useful information and guidance around digital capabilities. It offers a host of information and links to a variety of resources to support developing such capabilities, ranging from systems they need to access and use as employees to those that can enhance and innovate their professional and teaching practice.

How could these be used?

  • link to PDR
  • use as part of Away Day activities
  • Self development and CPD 
  • keep personal employee information up to date
  • learn ‘how to’ use various tools in the classroom

Curriculum Strategy Toolkit

This is designed to assist in the development of a distinct and transparent programme strategy on digital capabilities that can be articulated across all levels of a programme and the extra-curriculum. The toolkit can be used to both help map, articulate and gap analyse existing provision, and as part of the process of curriculum design in developing new programmes for approval.

How could this be used?

  • deploy to feed into design of new programme for approval, or as part of enhancement plans for programme re-approval
  • use in conjunction with UoP Peer Review on the DLE/TEL
  • used to contextualise QAA subject benchmarks
  • recommendation from Periodic Review as means of innovation and enhancement
