We run a number of skills training sessions each term.
Digital skills training sessions and Digital Wednesdays are open to all members of the University. Other Academic Skills Community sessions may be limited to students only.

Digital skills training

We have a broad range of content as part of our digital skills training programme, but each term we aim to include the following eight core sessions:

Follow the links above for more help on the topic and to see if any forthcoming sessions have been scheduled.

Digital Wednesdays

Digital Wednesdays are a range of sessions on various themes outside of our core selection of training. They may have a specialist focus, or they may just be plain out there! The only essential is that they're on a topic that's remotely digital.

This term we've got two main themes for our Digital Wednesdays:

Get the edge !

We'll be introducing you to various useful tools for being organised that you didn't know you didn't know about. Along the way, we'll lift the lid on the library catalogue, and we'll have a good play around in the Google Workspace.

Get creative !

But it's not all work: we've sessions on media editing, coding, and all sorts of other digital creativity fun and games for you to play with!


Academic Skills Community

The Academic Skills Community is the University of York approach to learning and communication support designed to help you advance your academic, language and interpersonal abilities.
