Your digital skills and capabilities
Supporting you to develop your digital skills and capabilities, through resources, tools and technologies at Bath.
We use the JISC digital capability framework to help you develop and evaluate your digital skills.
This framework categorises digital skills in six key areas:
- ICT Proficiency
- Information, data and media literacies
- Digital creation, problem solving and innovation
- Digital communication, collaboration and participation
- Digital learning and development
- Digital identity and wellbeing.
We've also compiled University of Bath resources linked to the six areas of digital capabilities. You can use these, as well as the resources highlighted in your personalised report, to develop your skills.Access digital skills resources on MySkills
