Digital Capabilities

The Adelaide Digital Capabilities Framework was designed with the aim to develop digitally capable graduates.

The Adelaide Digital Capabilities Framework is funded by the University Library and the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Student Learning). The Framework has been adapted from work by Jisc UK, a digital solution company, and includes a student and staff profile. Digital Capabilities are fundamental skills for transforming student and staff experience and are critical for academic and career success.

Our Pathway

Learning and Quality Support (LQS) are dedicated to supporting the framework by enabling staff, and in turn students, to explore and build their current and future digital capabilities. LQS aim to do two things:

  • Support the sharing of quality information and guidance on digital capabilities
  • Support the sharing of quality resources for building digital capabilities

LQS are engaging with other University teams through presentations and workshops on digital capabilities and identifying opportunities for digital transformation. To find our more about our strategy, or to get involved, please Learning and Quality Support.


LQS has created two interactives to highlight staff and student digital capabilities within the framework, please access these below. Start by clicking the staff or student interactive and then clicking each digital capability.

  • Discovery Tool

    A discovery tool for assessing your digital capabilities has been provided by Jisc UK. The tool takes between 10-15 minutes to complete and asks a series of reflective questions. You will receive a report with a summary of your current skills and areas for growth, and suggestions on the 'next steps' that you can take to grow your digital capabilities.
