Training courses

Higher education is going through a period of change transforming it beyond recognition. The web, social media and new approaches to scholarly communications are driving that. Academics and research students have a wealth of opportunities to engage with the world beyond their offices and labs. There is much to be gained by immersing yourself into the world of digital academia. There are also the pitfalls and overload of platform choice as to how best navigate this brave new world.

To help this transition I offer a variety of bespoke training courses to suit your organisation's best needs. My training style is informal, engaging and interactive. Experience has taught me that learners are at their most receptive if they are in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I like to make workshops ‘hands on’ where possible and like to interact with students throughout a workshop to ensure they take away as much practical skills as they can.
