iSkills: Professional, Academic, and Technical Workshops

Registration is open for the Winter 2017 iSkills workshops.  The iSkills Winter 2017 calendar may prove useful in helping you schedule your time.

The MI and MMSt curricula fit together with the iSkills workshops to create a unique and complete information and heritage graduate educational experience, as the iSkills workshops are the venues where iSchool graduate students develop, enhance, and refine their social networks and research, professional, personal and technical knowledge. 

These workshops:

  • Are available exclusively to currently enrolled iSchool students
  • Are a crucial part of successful studies at the iSchool
  • Provide a solid foundation to the practical and theoretical content of our MI and MMSt programs
