Nowadays, we live in a practically digitized world. Therefore, education has been one of the first to have the need to update itself digitally. This, togeth-er with exceptional situations such as COVID-19, have meant that the only way to teach is through ICT. As an objective of this communication, it is proposed to analyze the level of digital competences of European universi-ty teaching staff, in addition to detecting good practices in teaching and guidance using ICT. This is a mixed-method research in which 918 teachers participated in the quantitative part and 76 in the qualitative part. As an in-strument, the scale Necesidades formativas en estrategias orientadoras y tutoriales (NFEOT-17) has been used for quantitative research and the techniques of discussion group, nominal group and SWOT technique for qualitative research. As a result, a low digital competence is manifested in relation to teaching and university orientation. Furthermore, determining factors have been detected that characterize good ICT practices. In conclu-sion, the need to develop digital competencies in university teachers is highlighted so that they can be part of the new digital era and face excep-tional situations that may arise.
