iSkills: Professional, academic, & technical workshops

iSchool 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).

Registration

NEW REGISTRATION SYSTEM! An email with directions on how to register for iSkills Winter 2018 will be emailed to you by Kathleen Scheaffer at 12pm on January 9, 2018. ONLY through the link in the email are you able to register.  A current list and description of iSkills Winter 2018 workshops appears at the bottom of this page.

You MUST be registered for each workshop you attend. Those who show up to a workshop but who are not registered/on the attendance sheet will be asked to leave, as it in an imposition on the instructor and unfair to those who are registered/waitlisted for that session.  

Workshop handouts

Missed a workshop but still interested in the material? Check the table below for available handouts and presentation materials from Fall 2017 and before. Workshop materials, when available, are generally posted the week following the last session of a workshop. Materials from previous terms can be accessed by changing the year and term in the drop-down menus below.

Withdrawing

If you are unable to attend a workshop for which you have signed up, make sure to withdraw at least 48 hours prior to the workshop. Each registration confirmation email contains a link to use to withdraw; therefore, YOU MUST ENTER YOUR EMAIL CORRECTLY.

Penalty ($)

Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.  Please note, it is your responsibility to sign next to your name on the attendance sheet for each workshop session.  A blank signature spot will result in a penalty charge.

Questions, comments, suggestions

All questions, comments, and suggestions relating to iSkills workshops should be directed to Kathleen Scheaffer, Inforum Librarian, Outreach & Instructional Services Coordinator.
