Join the discussion
Our community of practice event is for staff and leaders in higher or further education who are responsible for developing digital capability in their organisations. Our aim is to help move digital capability practice forward across the sector.
This network event offers a unique opportunity for colleagues to work together on all aspects of digital capability and to share practice, ideas and issues around enhancing student, staff and organisational digital capability. It's also an opportunity to hear more about our building digital capability service and understand how it might help meet your goals.
We hold these events twice a year.

Playful strategies for engaging staff and students with digital capabilities
A chance to explore three game-based approaches to engaging staff and students with digital capabilities.
Developing digital learning plans
The University of Hull are developing an approach to developing student digital capability using short, manageable digital learning plans based on the diagnostic reports from the Jisc discovery tool. Students can use their reports to plan the development of digital capabilities for each year of study, using templates that can be shared with Academic Support Tutors (ASTs). ASTs can then provide support to students and initiate discussions around their digital capabilities.
This session will explore the approach being taken at Hull, and invite discussion around other approaches to developing student digital capability

Activity: exploring digital wellbeing
Jisc is supporting organisations to develop a holistic approach to developing the digital capabilities of staff and students through building digital capability. As part of the service, we have been exploring digital wellbeing.
This workshop will present our most recent definition of digital wellbeing with a focus on how organisations can support their staff and students in this area. We will explore what Jisc could be doing in this area and you will be encouraged to share your top tips on improving your own digital wellbeing.
