Learning at Work Day

19 May 2006

Do you have a sneaking suspicion your presentations are lacking a certain something? Traumatised by Microsoft drawing tools? Boggled by blogging? Learning at Work Day on 25 May 2006 is designed to tell you everything you always wanted to know about these topics, and many more.

UCL's Staff Development, IS Training, Library Services, Media Resources, Language Centre and Health & Safety have joined forces to offer staff across the university over 25 free sessions ranging from ten-minute snippets to full courses. Most activities, such as tackling jargon when buying a computer and enhancing the impact of research through UCL Eprints, will take place in the Wilkins Building and are unreserved.

Staff members are invited to drop by stands in the North Cloisters over lunchtime to find out more about a range of areas, including how to incorporate e-learning into teaching and making the most of Media Resources support.

Learning at Work Day is an annual awareness campaign run by the independent charity Campaign for Learning which started seven years ago as part of Adult Learners Week. Last year over 5,000 organisations across England took part.
