DSD: Excel Essential Skills - WORKSHOP 1 (Campus-based)
Course Description:

These campus-based workshops take a new approach to learning by presenting you with a problem to be solved and encouraging you to use your prior experience, web searches, in-application help and fellow participants to find a solution to the task.

By the end of the session you will have improved problem-solving skills, increased knowledge of the topic, a 'suggested solution' to the problem you worked on, and some resources and guidance for further learning.
