This year we will be running a number of workshops to help you improve your skills and manage your wellbeing whilst you study with us.
Workshops are open to all Centre for Lifelong Learning students, no matter what your course of study.
Term one workshops
Improving your digital skills
This hands-on session will introduce participants to:
- quick computer basics (managing, saving & finding files);
- using Microsoft Word (aligning text, changing fonts, margins, line-spacing, headers & footers and style gallery);
- getting started with PowerPoint (Adding text, adding and editing images, adding and sorting slides).
There will also be an opportunity to get 1:1 help in the hour after the session or follow the training up with further help as needed.
12-1pm, Thursday 25 October Westwood PC Room
Writing your first essay
This workshop will provide tips and advice on the key issues to focus on when writing your first essays. Attention will particularly be paid to the requirements of academic writing and strategies to ensure success. In doing so, we will analyse the marking criteria to ensure you understand what is required and signpost further sources of academic writing support at the University.
