Technology in the Core Fall 2021


We are all set and ready to start with the Information Technology Literacy Workshops this term. These workshops are part of the “Technology in the Core” program, along with the online modules and the information technology literacy test that several of you have already checked out.

We are offering four technology workshops this fall. They are offered in two cycles, in case you cannot make it for one of the workshops in one cycle. Attendance to the workshops is voluntary but highly encouraged (detailed schedule below). All workshops will be held online via Zoom.

These interactive and hands-on workshops are led by iSchool Peer Technology Advisors to ensure that you acquire the minimum required IT skills and knowledge for your graduate program. No pre-requisites or previous preparation. Just drop by and come ready to learn.

If you are taking both workshops on web design (HTML and CSS), we recommend taking the HTML and CSS workshop in sequence since CSS builds up on HTML.
