As key contributors in the endeavour to build student digital capability, university library staff must be capable and confident in the digital environment. In addressing this need, the Council of Australian University Librarians (CAUL) Digital Dexterity program has taken a sector-wide approach to sustain a unique community of practice (CoP). Established as a partnership between CAUL and CAVAL, the CoP includes 52 institutionally nominated Digital Dexterity Champions. This paper outlines how the CAUL Digital Dexterity Capability team has fostered the CoP, encouraging collaboration and the exchange of knowledge, supporting collective learning and grounding digital dexterity in real world practice.
