Want a library workshop?
Our workshops provide technology training to the WU community which will lead to better, more relevant training to meet the needs of students, staff, and faculty, along with increased collaboration with faculty in integrating information technology skills into the curriculum.
Our hope is that this program will:
1. promote information fluency among students, faculty, and staff;
2. integrate technology instruction for WU students, faculty, and staff more fully into the curriculum and administrative programs;
3. offer tailored, "just in time" technology training; and
4. increase flexibility in responding to campus needs for technology training.
