Digital capabilities for a cloud-first, mobile-first education

  1. 1. Are you ready to achieve more in education and life? Today’s world is digital and mobile, app-based and personal. To thrive in it, greater confidence around how best to harness technology and new digital skills are vital. But not everyone has them. Or they may need to boost the skills they have to help them develop in their specific role. To help you accelerate your learning, research capabilities, or impact as a teacher, Microsoft has teamed up with some of the leading education organisations in the UK. This guide and easy-to-use tool can help you assess your digital literacy and capabilities and to easily find the necessary courses and resources to propel you forward. This document is designed to guide you in developing your expertise with plenty of free online resources to raise your digital readiness to new heights and help you become future leaders in business and academia. The benefit? Turbocharged creative, collaborative, and competitive abilities, so you can achieve more in education and life. Good luck with the next steps on the following pages and be sure to visit the Glossary at the end of this document for an overview of the full Microsoft Cloud and Microsoft 365 experience. Clare Riley, FE and HE Engagement Manager, Microsoft Welcome to the digital future! INTRODUCTION
  2. 2. Choose the learning path tailored for you Research shows that role-based learning approaches are much more effective than a one-size-fits-all strategy. That’s why the University of Leicester has been excited to support Microsoft – as a trusted advisor - in thinking deeply about individual staff and student needs. After all, ‘valuing people’ has been at the centre of our own journey to grow a community of digitally confident professionals here at the University. For us it continues to be about recognizing how everyone has different needs and potential. That’s what’s been central to our plans to build together our ‘Digital Campus’. We are delighted to see this interactive guide starting with a consideration of what role you have in your university or college. Professor Ross Parry, University of Leicester Why role-based learning matters LEARNINGROLES
  3. 3. Build on what you know, using free online resources To help you develop your digital capabilities progressively, you need to learn about the skills required to accelerate your development. We’ve worked in conjunction with Jisc and Microsoft to categorise these skills into three levels – bronze, silver and gold – depending on whether they will help drive productivity, creativity, or innovation, respectively. For each level, we’ve also developed three core learning paths so you can take charge of our own development and navigate the necessary online courses and learning resources you need to succeed. Penny Langford, Head of eLearning, MK College Digital skill levels: Bronze, silver, and gold Gold Discover the technology which will help transform your world and provide a platform to address the challenges of today and tomorrow. All about innovation, inspiring and innovating using digital technology. Silver Discover the technology and skills you need to thrive and succeed in the digital world and encourage collaboration. All about creativity, using technology to create and collaborate. Bronze Discover the skills you need to fulfil your role day-to-day. Skills at this level are all about productivity, working confidently and effectively in a digital world. SKILLLEVELS
  4. 4. Where do your skills stand today? DIGITALCAPABILITIES • Digital creation • Digital research and problem solving • Digital innovation • Digital communication • Digital collaboration • Digital participation • Digital identity management • Digital well-being • Information literacy • Data literacy • Media literacy • ICT proficiency • ICT productivity • Digital learning • Digital teaching Building digital capability: From surviving to thriving in a digital world For over 30 years, Jisc has been a trusted partner and expert adviser on digital technology for universities and colleges throughout the UK. During this time, technological change has continued to transform our workplaces – with the expectation that in the next 20 years 90 percent of all jobs will require digital skills. The Jisc Digital Capabilities framework (right) is widely recognised in universities and colleges and provides a benchmark for the digital capabilities that are required for a range of academic, administrative, and professional roles. With this as a backdrop, we hope you enjoy stepping through this guide and easily finding the courses and resources which can help you move from bronze to silver to gold appropriate for your role. Shri Footring, Senior Co-design Manager, Jisc
  5. 5. Tips on how to proceed USINGTHISGUIDE Assess your skill levels first, and find the courses and resources to build your capability and confidence This document provides step-by-step guidelines for students, academics, researchers, and administrators looking to advance their digital skills and capabilities.

  7. 7. Gain new digital skills to accelerate your learning As a student, chances are you grew up when the World Wide Web was just taking off. You may use a laptop, smartphone, and maybe even a tablet interchangeably for personal study, social media, shopping, entertainment, and video calls with friends. You know the basics of Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, perhaps some Excel. For you, technology should be easy to use and just work. Forget dense technology explanations, much less manuals — but it is always great to have someone to call. Improving your digital skills can help you to learn faster, work better on group projects, and ensure you can achieve the highest marks possible in your coursework. Use the icons below to discover the courses and tools you need to enhance your skills.

Gathering, collating, normalising, analysing, storing, securing, sharing, and presenting it are all tasks that describe a typical week for you. You’ve been using technology for a long time and have become expert at using it, preferring to solve tech issues on your own instead of contacting IT’s help desk. It’s good to be in control of your technology use rather than needing to work inside IT’s restrictions or having IT install software you need. Working with colleagues is important, too, so you’re likely comfortable with apps like Skype and Teams that facilitate collaboration. New digital skills can help you achieve more in your investigations and cultivate wider and deeper relationships with colleagues both where you work and in your professional circles around the world.

  36. 36. Acquire new digital skills to enhance learning experiences As an academic, getting students excited about your lecture topics is your mission — and key to their learning. That can be a challenge when students have limited attention spans. Odds are, you also must grade exams and papers, hold office hours, conduct research, write papers, and do some administration, so time is precious. While you know technology can be helpful, its effectiveness in new teaching and investigative approaches can be uncertain, not to mention that setting up new technologies demands your scarce time. If it works, great; if not, you want over- the-shoulder help quickly. Developing your digital skills can give you new ways to engage your students, so they learn more effectively. Plus, technology can give you tools to achieve more in the many other areas of your academic work. Use the icons below to discover the courses and tools you need to enhance your skills.

Add new digital skills to boost productivity and performance As an administrator, you work hard to ensure your department’s performance — organisational and operational — is always the best it can be. Email, calls, reports, and recordkeeping, often using Microsoft Office applications, keep you extremely busy. When questions arise, people look to you for answers. It’s a juggling act, with time forever in short supply. That’s why productivity matters so much. And why poor communications between departments and multiple systems to access or manage can seem frustrating.
