During Welcome week and the first week of Semester one, the Digital Skills and Training team deliver Making the most of IT (Information Technology) sessions to new students following requests from schools within the University.

The sessions are delivered as one-hour presentations and introduce new students to the main IT, library and learning technology services at the University

These sessions will also highlight some of the many ways students can develop their digital skills during their time at the university, including the Digital Skills Framework and the free LinkedIn Learning online learning service.
