This video explains how to use the Digital Literacies Hub.

It is important to consider various aspects of digital capabilities, to recognise strengths in areas and room for improvement in others.

The Digital Literacies Hub developed at Queen’s allows staff to audit their digital skills and explore new areas for development within six different areas of digital capability.

This rich set of resources will help staff to unlock their digital skills and support them to work in an ever-changing and sometimes demanding digital environment.

In the hub you can audit your digital skills and discover the potential of different digital capabilities. You can also browse sets of curated resources and find training opportunities that will allow you to enhance your digital skills.
