Digital Learning Capability Roadmap


The 2020–2023 Digital Learning Capability Roadmap (DLCR) is a critical enabler to UQ's core teaching and learning functions. It aims to build the capability of our staff, alongside putting in place robust and enabling technologies to support their work.

Based on the results of student and staff digital experience surveys (UQ login required) (PDF, 1.5 MB), it appears that:

  1. UQ students and staff want to engage with digital teaching and learning
  2. Staff and students want a digital ecosystem which delivers a high-quality digital experience
  3. Staff want guidance on digital teaching and best-practice use of technology for student learning.

The DLCR was created as a direct response to these insights. Led by the Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC), in partnership with the Institute for Teaching and Learning Innovation (ITaLI), Information Technology Services (ITS) and the Library, the roadmap relies upon collaboration, integration and striking a balance between enterprise-wide systems and fostering innovation and experimentation.

The DLCR is organised through three horizons of work, staggered over the next three years. Click on each of the horizons below to learn more.


  • Improved productivity and time-on-task gains from more seamless data integration
  • Improved student and staff satisfaction with technology capability mix, user-interface and user experience
  • Improved uptake of the technologies that support active, personalised blended learning practices
  • Improved academic and discipline-specific agency; greater parity with the future of work practices
  • Improved communication and engagement, training, resources and professional learning uptake and access.
