We run a number of digital skills training sessions each term. Our digital skills training sessions are open to all members of the University.
To book onto a session, follow its link below (you'll need to log in to the booking system). If a session you're interested in is full, sign up onto the waiting list - if we have enough interest in a session we may repeat it. You'll also find copies of our slides throughout the Skills Guides.
Note - What with one thing and another, the following sessions will be taking place online. In some cases this delivery will be in the form of self-directed packages such as slide decks and workbooks; in other cases there may be video delivery at the specified time. If you sign up to an event we'll be able to contact you with the relevant details for that session.
See the full list of Academic, Library & IT Support events.
We also run a number of specialised training sessions for staff and research postgraduates:
The Library's Research Support Team offer training to postgraduate research students and staff through the Research Excellence Training programme.
Although we don't run workshops in the Summer vacation we are still here to help you. Contact the Team for:
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.
For Digital Wednesdays this term, we are running a series of sessions with a focus on research and the digital tools that can help you with dissertations and theses.
From gathering and visualising data to communicating your findings, these sessions will look at how digital applications can help you with different stages of the research process, regardless of discipline or level. You'll find them all on the training list under the Digital Wednesdays banner.
Further advice and resources from the sessions and beyond can be found on our Practical Guide to digital tools for research.
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:
|Taking note of note-taking applications|
|"Where did I read that thing?": Reference management|
|Let's get critical I: Making sense of academic sources|
|Let's get critical II: How to read an article|
|Let's get critical III: Taking an academic approach to your reading|
|Let's get critical IV: Powerful arguments with referencing|
|It's all in the presentation: saucing (and sourcing) up your slides|
|Making Word work!|
Follow the links above for more help on the topic and to see if any forthcoming sessions have been scheduled.
You'll also find copies of all our slides and teaching materials on our sessions page.
