Last week Jisc released the first in a series of blog posts to bring the sector up to date with the developments to their Digital Capabilities Framework.
Following feedback from users, including professional body consultations, they have made several important changes, including clarifying the difference between proficiency and productivity, extending the idea of ‘scholarship‘ to evidence-based problem solving, and recognising that we do ‘development‘, not just self-development.
You can read more in the first blog post here: https://digitalcapability.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2017/03/09/digital-capabilities-framework-an-update/
In their second update they have released new and updated example role profiles, mapped to the Digital Capability Framework:
- Teacher profile for Higher Education (mapped to UKPSF)
- Leader profile
- Learner profile
- Researcher profile (mapped to Vitae Framework)
Again, you can read more on their blog: https://digitalcapability.jiscinvolve.org/wp/2017/03/09/digital-capabilities-framework-an-update/
