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 no-longer be taking part in the advertised locations. We're leaving booking open for now pending decisions on alternate methods of delivery.
See the full list of Academic, Library & IT Support events.
We also run a number of specialised training sessions for staff and research postgraduates:
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.
The best way to learn how to build webpages is to go back to the beginning. And that's just what we'll do. The first time we ran a course like this was back in the year 2000.
Take a look at our training calendar for more details.
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.
