Open and digitally competent academics: European frameworks and tools for professional development and self-assessment

In support of the political agenda for the Modernisation of higher education in Europe (COM 2017) and the Digital Education Action Plan (COM 2018), the European Commission's JRC has developed frameworks and tools to foster innovation in higher education practices, continuous professional development and enhanced teaching practices for academics. 'Practical Guidelines on open education for Academics: Modernising Higher Education Via Open Educational Practices' is a  hands-on check-list based on the OpenEdu Framework (JRC, 2016) to help academics reflect about their skills on open education practices, as well as the challenges they face and the benefits of engaging with new practices. The guidelines provide ideas for academics to start drawing on open education practices from basic to more advanced levels of engagement. In addition, in order to be an open academic, being digitally competent is important. To this end, the DigCompEdu framework and its Check-in tool provide academics with a conceptual framework, reflection and self-diagnosis tool to indicate their proficiency level in digital competence at the same time showing possible routes to level-up. We will look into these tools in depth, exploring opportunities for collaboration, and will be updated on the most recent research initiatives and country-based experiences based on the use of such frameworks and tools.
