Workshops and TrainingPosted: August 31, 2015
Did you know, staff and Academics are also able to go to the Workshops and Training sessions offered by the library? And they are free!
With a wide range from Academic Skills, Computing Skills, Library Skills and Higher Degree Research – there is always something to help you, and even better, something to offer your students. These workshops are designed to assist the student with getting the most out of researching and their academic pursuits.
Week 3 (10-14th of August) was specifically dedicated to referencing workshops, to aid with the student’s knowledge and understanding of the importance of correct referencing. The library has a self-help guide to referencing and a tool to help with basic referencing guidelines for AGPS Harvard, APA6, MLA and Vancouver.
As a staff member or academic, you are also welcome to book into one of these sessions to get tips and tricks to offer your students or even just to know what is being presented today through the library network. Many of the Computing Skills workshops are about getting the most out of Microsoft Office, EndNote (both MAC and Windows) and the Research Survey Tool. You can book a consultation with the ICT Literacy Specialists, but if you have just a quick question, there are always the drop-in sessions at both Gold Coast and Nathan libraries:
- Gold Coast (G10_2.04): Thursdays 10:00-12:00 (year round)
- Nathan (N53_1.50): Tuesdays 2:00-4:00 (year round)
Make sure you tell your students about Study Smart – an online tutorial about researching, writing and studying at Griffith University.
