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

Missed a workshop but still interested in the material? Check the table below for available workshop handouts and presentation materials from Winter 2016 and before. Handouts are generally posted in the week following the last session of a workshop.  Handouts from previous terms can be accessed by changing the year and term in the dropdown menus below.

Withdrawing

If you are unable to attend a workshop you signed up for, make sure to withdraw, http://uoft.me/withdraw, at least 24 hours prior to the workshop.

Penalty ($)

Should you fail to withdraw 24+ hours in advance; thus, preventing your interested colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $5.
