Upcoming Free Workshops & Webinars

By: Natasha Crespo

The fall term is kicking into gear and hopefully all new and returning students, staff, and faculty are as well. We’ve been waiting for it and have free workshops and webinars (for those of you unable to come to campus) available to teach you new skills or update your existing ones.

Check out workshops for Prezi (and other dynamic presentation tools), learn how to do an advanced web search and use Google Scholar, create your e-portfolio and a website, and learn to use Zotero for making bibliographies and in-text citations easier.

This workshop covers the basics of setting up an account and using an interactive template to create your first Prezi presentation. No prior experience is necessary for this workshop.

Advanced web search and Google Scholar:

This covers how to use Google’s advanced search features, Google Scholar, and Google Books to find the information you need from reliable web sites.  Learn how Google works, about the filter bubble, and alternative search engines.

Google sites and other e-portfolio tools:

Graduation requirement or not, e-portfolios are a tool to highlight your work and help land that first job.  This workshop will get you started creating a Google Sites e-portfolio and introduce several other free e-portfolio builders.

Zotero – Citation management tool:

Save all your sources–books, articles, and web sites–in one place and automatically create bibliographies and in-text citations using a tool that lives in your web browser. Add anything you’re viewing with one click.

Please register at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled research workshop/webinar and be on time.

 

There will be workshops and a webinar offered in October as well.
