What do we mean by “Digital capability”?

It is the term we use to describe the skills and attitudes that individuals and organisations need if they are to succeed in today's world.
•    At an individual level, we define digital capabilities as those which equip someone to live, learn and work in a digital society.
•    At an organisational level, we need to look beyond the capabilities of individuals and consider the extent to which the culture and infrastructure of an institution enables and motivates digital practices. (JISC 2023)

The Digital Capabilities Tool is an excellent resource to help you reflect on your own digital capabilities. It will produce a personal report which will help you to identify the areas you can develop to support you on your studies and on your career trajectory.
