Digital Skills Workshops For Academics

FREE ONLINE SESSIONS – Learn about digital tools and how they can help you build your research career 🙂

2023 Online Workshop Program

Start time: All sessions start at 7 pm (Melbourne, Australia time).
Session length: ~60 minutes (30-minute introduction/demonstration of the digital tool, followed by 30-minutes Q&A).
How to attend: A Zoom link will be emailed to everyone who’s signed up for my email newsletter. Not signed up yet? No problem, to receive your invitation to attend simply fill in the form below.
Are these workshops right for you? Sessions are introductory in nature and are designed for academics with no/little prior knowledge.
Cost: FREE – Why free? Because I wish I’d known about these tools when I started out on my academic journey. Life could have been so much easier, and far more productive. I’m now on a mission to share them with anyone who’ll listen 🙂
