5 Understanding your responsibilities

When working digitally you need to understand your responsibilities and behaviours in line with your organisation’s requirements and expectations. As you saw from the list earlier in this course it has become more important to have this understanding when hybrid working. Organisations are now more reliant on trusting those working remotely to respect their requirements and to have the capability, tools and environment to do so.

Most HEIs will have guidance and polices to ensure their staff understand the requirements for safety and security, digital governance, accessibility, inclusion and intellectual property. However, working responsibly is more wide-reaching.

Depending on your role, and the products and services you may deliver, there often are a set of formal and informal guidelines that you also need to consider. These can range from organisational brand guidelines, use of systems and tools, and importantly, your digital behaviour, both in terms of how you manage your devices and how you communicate with others.
