Event Overview
In today’s world, digital competence is essential in order to learn, teach, work, and participate in society. It starts at a young age and becomes even more critical for faculty, staff, and students in colleges to be able to learn and adapt to digital skills for communication, data management, data analysis and presentations, and design.

The course will use Bryn Mawr’s Digital Competencies Program as a model. The model focuses on a collection of digital skills, categorized into five main focus areas: Digital Survival Skills, Digital Communications, Data Management & Preservation, Data Analysis & Presentation, and Critical Making, Design & Development.  

During the session, participants will begin by learning about the elements and assessing which might work for their university initiatives and which aren’t relevant to their campus’s strategic plans, resources, and culture. The second part of the session will focus on Identifying stakeholders and likely partners and outlining possible outreach and campus integration opportunities, including specific types of student engagement activities.

Who should attend 
This workshop is intended for anyone seeking to create a digital competencies program on their campus, as well as faculty and staff responsible for administering programming in support of this kind of initiative.

Session Outcomes:
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will have three main components to build their own Digital Competencies Program:
 - A list of key elements for their digital competencies framework that align with institutional strategic plans and resources.
 - A list of potential stakeholders and project partners.
- An outline of outreach and campus integration opportunities to bolster buy-in and expedite implementation.
