Digital Tuesdays Workshops

Deepen your digital know-how! Our workshops will equip you with the skills needed to thrive in a digital environment. They take place every Tuesday during term-time, at 11am in the Library. Most workshops are 45 minutes long and take place in the Library's Open Learning Space, but we advise attendees to check specific workshop booking forms for exact times and room locations. Each week is a standalone session, so there is no need to have attended previous workshops to come along.

How to book a session 

Students and staff can sign-up through the events links below, or drop-in on the day.

Some workshops provide the opportunity to engage with digital technologies during the session, and attendees may find it useful to bring along a mobile device, though this is not essential.
