You may be interested in a forthcoming 'Spotlight on digital capabilities' event to be held at MediaCityUk, University of Salford, on 3rd & 4th June. The deadline for booking is next Friday, 8th May.

This two day event will look at the digital capabilities that staff and students need to live, learn and work and how to challenge the already digitally capable to update and expand their skills. The event will feature new skills and practices in online learning, collaboration and communication, as well as identifying approaches to supporting those who lack confidence and experience in using newer digital tools.
Presentations and discussions will focus on particularly successful approaches and practices, as well as some lessons learnt. The event will also highlight the key findings from the UCISA Digital capabilities survey from Summer 2014 which revealed a rich and diverse range of approaches and practices to supporting staff and student development. On the same theme, Jisc is running a major programme reviewing a number of options for improving support for digital capabilities in the sector. There will be plenty of networking opportunities.
The event is being run by UCISA in partnership with Jisc.
