Develop your digital skills this academic year

By Caroline E Norris, on 27 September 2019

ISD Digital Skills Development has released dates for the Autumn term.   As usual, we are offering a wide range of courses covering Excel, Photoshop, Matlab, SPSS, and more.

New this term we have our Software for success sessions.  Are you starting a new research project, thesis or dissertation?  Unsure what tools to use for writing up and citation?  Need help understanding the different options for data analysis?  These short, lunchtime sessions will help you answer these questions and determine the best way to get up and running.  Book a place on a Software for success presentation.

We have added new sessions for our highly popular  Creating accessible documents course.  Making documents accessible is important for everyone, whether or not they have a disability or impairment. In this session you will learn how to make your PowerPoint, Word, Excel and PDF files more accessible.  Book a place on a Creating accessible documents course.
