1.2 A digital context

As this course is part of a digital transformation collection, it will examine wellbeing and inclusion from a digital perspective. This will be informed by one element of Jisc’s Building Digital Capabilities Framework (Jisc, 2018), namely ‘Digital Identity and Wellbeing’. Jisc defined ‘Digital Wellbeing’ as the capacity to:

  • look after personal health, safety, relationships and work–life balance in digital settings
  • use digital tools in pursuit of personal goals (e.g. health and fitness) and to participate in social and community activities
  • act safely and responsibly in digital environments
  • negotiate and resolve conflict
  • manage digital workload, overload and distraction
  • act with concern for the human and natural environment when using digital tools.

Many of these points will be explored throughout the course. It will also touch on some aspects of the ‘Digital Identity’ part of Jisc’s framework, which relates to having an understanding of the reputational benefits and risks involved in digital participation.

The other elements in Jisc’s Building Digital Capabilities Framework are explored in the following courses from the Supporting hybrid working and digital transformation in Wales [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] collection:
