What to expect

This is a live, facilitated, online micro-credential designed to support digital proficiency.

Throughout the 7 weeks you will:

  • Increase your confidence and digital skills such as online collaboration, communication, evaluation, empathy, giving and receiving feedback – the list goes on
  • Get hands-on experience with a wealth of digital tools and guidance as to how to evaluate them for your specific requirements
  • Complete a project, directly related to your industry or passion
  • Take part in a 3-hour live facilitated class each week, including breakout sessions with practical application, not just theory
  • Immediately implement your skills and knowledge in the workplace and beyond
  • Get support from facilitators, and access an online platform to keep in touch / ask questions outside of class
  • Build a community of like-minded learners

Why are digital skills important? Because online tools are constantly changing. And we need to adapt and learn to evaluate the plethora of tools to determine which ones will serve us best, and keep pace with this change.

What is the difference between digital tools and digital skills? Well, anyone can watch a quick YouTube tutorial and figure out how to use a digital tool, but the soft skills required to maximise these tools – that is what we focus on. How to effectively collaborate online, give and receive feedback, improve productivity, be empathetic and analytic, and so much more. Learn more about the difference, here.
