LIS October Workshop Schedule Includes Drupal & lynda.com

Pinch yourself.  If you feel something it means you survived the start of the academic year!  Since you’ve done so well it’s time to treat yourself and learn some new skills that will make your life easier.  Check out go/lisworkshops to view our hot-off-the-press workshop schedule and get signed up for topics of interest.

We’re excited to offer several opportunities to get acquainted with  lynda.com — a fabulous online learning resource that uses short videos to help you acquire new skills.  You can work through an entire course (something nice to mention at performance evaluation time!) or watch a single movie for just-in-time learning.  With over 1,400 courses, there is something for everyone.  Recent additions include “Effective Public Speaking” and “Mac OS X Mountain Lion New Features.”

You’ll also find Drupal workshops on our schedule covering the basics of maintaining a departmental web site and work sessions where you can get  help with your specific questions.

LIS Workshops – August

Don’t miss out!  There is still time to fit in some learning before fall semester leaps out from behind the nearest patch of sunflowers…  Visit go/lisworkshops to view our schedule and get signed up for topics of interest. You’ll find Drupal sessions to help you get your departmental web site up to snuff before the next batch of students arrives on campus.  You’ll also find another opportunity to find out about lynda.com and how you can start using it to improve your skills.

LIS Workshops — July/August

Although summer is a busy time for many around campus, we are offering a few learning opportunities with the added enticement of air conditioning. Visit go/lisworkshops to view our schedule and get signed up for sessions of interest. You’ll find Drupal introductions and work sessions so you can spruce up your departmental web sites.  You’ll also find a few more chances to find out about lynda.com and how you can start using it (wherever you are!) to improve your skills.

LIS Workshops — May/June

There are a few more learning opportunities on the horizon before our language schools students arrive on campus, so we hope you’ll visit go/lisworkshops to view our schedule and get signed up for sessions of interest. We’re squeezing in a Drupal introduction as well as a work session so you can spruce up your departmental web sites.  You’ll also find a few more chances to find out about lynda.com and how you can start using it (wherever the summer may find you!) to improve your skills.  You may be surprised to learn that lynda is not just for technology — it includes such topics as “time management skills,” “achieving your goals” and “effective meetings.”

LIS Workshops — May

Sign-ups are now open for our May workshop offerings.  Visit go/lisworkshops for all the details. You’ll find Drupal sessions to help you build and manage departmental web sites, as well as a few more opportunities to find out how you can start using lynda.com to improve your technology skills.
