iSkills: Professional, academic, & technical workshops

Faculty of Information professors, librarians, staff, current students, alumni, and a collective of professionals and academics from each program and concentration, worked together to create the iSkills roster of workshops listed below. Together with the MMSt and MI curricula, they create a unique and complete information and heritage graduate educational experience. They also address academic, professional, and technical competencies aligned with your program and/or concentration(s).
