Digital Dates

Please note that the Digital Dates Programme is presently under review for 2017-2018 and no future dates are scheduled. If you wish to know about past events please visit the links below.

Living, learning and working in a digital society requires us all to develop digital expertise.  Digital Dates is a programme of short, informal workshops for both staff and students across the University co-ordinated by Organisational Development and Professional Learning (OD&PL) and Skills@Library to help us to develop digital skills to support all aspects of our lives at the University.
