I went to an excellent talk by James Clay on Building Digital Capabilities at the London Region Staff Development Network this afternoon.James described the skills needed by staff in a wide range of academic, administrative and professional roles to thrive in a modern University environment.

He gave an outline JISC’s Digital Capability Framwork and the discovery, diagnostic and reflective tools that will help university staff in a range of roles identify and reflect on current skills levels and digital capability, and make plans for how these can be improved.


He also highlighted the Digital Leader Programme starting in October – which I would love top go to but at over £2000 this will have to wait a awhile – or maybe JISC could offer a cheaper online version?

On a side note the meeting was held at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine – they had some fabulous lighting in the basement, as you walked down a corridor a sensor triggered images of bugs (they looked liked cockroaches on the floor):
