Developing digital skills, capabilities and behaviours, both as an individual and as an organisation, is a continual process as technology and ways of working evolve. Our reliance on technology is essential to live and work.

As your confidence and competence grow you will be able to make more informed decisions and use technology responsibly and sustainably to your advantage, to ensure that your organisation's needs and the needs of your employees, students and the wider community can be met in a digital world.

Digital in Wales: an opportunity

At the start of this course we asked you to read A journey to a prosperous Wales [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] – Section 5 Skills for the future.

Wales is considered one of the most advanced countries in the world for its innovative approach to sustainability through the Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015, and its digital strategy clearly sets out what is required to develop the skills and infrastructure for the future.

Drawing on the notes you have made throughout this course, and reviewing the Digital Strategy for Wales, reflect on what you think HEIs need to focus on for the future to build digital capabilities and ensure that their digital transformation will support the wellbeing of future generations.

This course is part of the Supporting hybrid working and digital transformation collection, which you may wish to explore further.
