Digital competence, capability and/or literacy are still mostly understood and approached within higher education in terms of technical skills and knowledge. However, with media and digital technologies today are embedded in everyone’s life and learning, it is now becoming clear that nurturing digital competence has become crucial for overall wellbeing of staff and students (Biggins et al. 2017). Their holistic approach to digital competence is in line with Todres et al.’s (2009) humanisation framework, a significant body of research suggest that digital technology plays an important role in the development of insiderness, agency, uniqueness, togetherness, sense-making, personal journey and sense of place. This chapter will combine the nursing humanisation curricula work with that of digital competence frameworks, offering a model which is of relevance to higher education practitioners concerned with the wellbeing of students and staff.
