DigiPath has been created by the Technology Enabled Learning and Teaching team at the University of Central Lancashire.
The DigiPath tool is designed for academic teaching staff to help reflect on digital capabilities, identify strengths and discover potential areas to develop. Use it individually or to help map digital expertise and experience across teams. DigiPath can be used as a standalone tool, and also forms part of our wider DigiLearn framework.
DigiPath is aligned to the Academic Professional Apprenticeship and the Higher Education Academy (UKPSF). It’s also mapped to the six areas of the Jisc Digital Capabilities Framework and UCLan’s Learning and Teaching Strategy.
Each pathway comprises reflective questions about digital practices. There are no right or wrong answers – this is a reflective tool for you. On completion of the pathway you’ll see a badge visualisation of your skills which will build your digital profile. You’ll also be presented with suggested applications to try, case studies from UCLan colleagues to explore and a list of recommended resources. Whilst the lists of apps and resources aren’t exhaustive, they provide a good starting point if you’d like to develop your skills further.
It will take less than five minutes to answer questions in each pathway and a little longer to start exploring resources and case studies. Recommended apps, resources and case studies for completed pathways can be revisited at any time in your DigiPath Profile page. Your Profile page is also a place to record reflections about your digital practices and areas you’d like to focus on.
If you would like to discuss any of the pathways, resources or possibilities with a member of the team, please get in touch with TELT@uclan.ac.uk or contact your Faculty Learning Technologist. Let us know what you think about DigiPath by completing our short feedback form.
