Developing Digital Skills Workshop


17 August 2019 – London, UK

Digital literacy (digital tool knowledge + critical thinking) is an important set of skills for research. Acquiring it involves mastering several core competencies including, but not limited to:

– Internet searching, hypertextual navigation and content evaluation

– using information in multiple formats from a wide range of sources

– using the Internet as a publishing medium

The workshop will help you develop digital literacy skills and competencies and will encourage critical reflection on how these skills and competencies are applied. It will advance your knowledge on the digital tools available in your field of research and how to use them effectively and appropriately.

Topics will include:

  • Teaching with data: Collaborative research in the classroom

  • Working with existing datasets and creating datasets from primary sources

The workshop will be divided into three sessions with breaks for tea, coffee and snacks. All the participants will receive certificates.
