Online lunchtime lecture – The Digital Competence Wheel!

Lecturer: Sandra Ósk Jóhannsdóttir, VR vocational training expert

We live in a world of rapid change, which affects our lives in many different ways. Whether it is trade, services, knowledge acquisition, healthcare or business, change calls for ever more evolving approaches. This includes new skills relating to use, understanding, knowledge and skills. One of the most noticeable changes is digital development, and industry’s demand for digital skills will therefore be unavoidable.

In this lecture, Sandra Ósk Jóhannsdóttir – VR vocational training expert – looks at the concept of ‘digital skills’ and presents the various elements that the European Union has classed as the main aspects of digital competence. She describes how the Digital Competence Wheel works – the Digital Competence Wheel is an online self-assessment tool based on the European model, which VR invites its members and all Icelanders to use. The output of the self-assessment gives a good overview of a person’s digital skills, categorises them and gives guidance on taking the results forward.

The lecture will be available only online. It will be streamed at the advertised time and available via the link for the rest of the day. It will then available in ‘My Pages’ on the VR website for 30 days. This lecture will be subtitled in English.
