Slides from James' keynote at LILAC 16.

Effective use of digital technology by university and college staff is vital in providing a compelling student experience and in realising a good return on investment in digital technology.

Jisc has created a digital capability framework that has six core elements that allows staff and institutions to map the skills required by different roles.

James Clay, project manager at Jisc, will explore the history and background to the building digital capability project and the importance of staff within libraries understanding their own digital capability and, as well as supporting and building the digital capabilities of others.

The keynote will showcase how Jisc working with stakeholders and sector bodies, aim to provide clear guidance over what digital skills are required, and equip leaders and staff with the tools and resources they need to improve digital capability at a local and institutional level.

It will provide a library lens on the digital capability framework and possible next steps for staff wanting to build digital information literacy as well as the other elements of digital capability.
