Jisc Discovery Tool

Digital skills are something that you will develop throughout your career. The Discovery tool helps you to explore your digital know-how. You can use it to self-assess your digital capabilities, identify your strengths, and offers opportunities to develop your skills further to enhance your practice of learning.

It uses a series of reflective questions that relate to the Jisc framework building digital capabilities: the six elements defined. It also offers question sets considering digital capabilities for specific roles (eg teaching staff, library staff) or focus areas (e.g. accessibility and inclusion).

Discovery tool questions are quiz-like and non-judgmental. They aim to assess users’ confidence and experience with a host of real-world digital practices. Just by answering the questions, you are made aware of digital practices you already have and new ones you might try.

On completion, you will receive a report with suggested next steps and links to free resources that can help you develop further.
