Digital Competencies for Educators

The Fit for Online Learning Course is informed by a scientific framework known as the Digital Competency Framework for Educators in Higher Education, which details how digital technologies can be used to enhance and innovate education and training.

By participating in the Fit for Online Learning course, you are building skills in many of the below described six areas of digital competence. See the table at the bottom of this page to find out about the specific competencies to be developed in the five modules of this course.

Note you can use the framework as a tool to self-evaluate your current digital proficiency level and strategise your future teaching development in the identified areas for improvement.
