This Tech Buyer Presentation provides a detailed dashboard view of the digital skills competency framework for higher education by mapping defined skill areas with three adoption levels: basic, intermediate, and advanced. This report covers digital competencies for mainly three sections of higher education, namely, school management and strategy development, teaching and learning, and campus operations. This skill framework was developed exclusively for corporate admin staff, professional officers, and academic staff. This report also provides a general competency framework for all employees.
This report emphasizes that a digital skill set is necessary for not just IT departments but also non-IT depth education personnel for seamless and outcome-based digital adoption in higher education.
"Although today's technologies may not be able to fully replicate the immersive experiences of classes taught or highly dynamic in-person corporate meetings, equipping teachers and institutional staff with digital skills can lead to transformational outcomes for the higher education sector. Both IT and non-IT practitioners would do well to pick up new digital skills so that they can continually reinvent themselves and be relevant in the future economy," says Gerald Wang, head, IDC Asia/Pacific Public Sector.
