Digital Confidence Courses for 2019

Course 1 – Face to Face (f2f) – for those of you who are really struggling and would value ring-fenced, face to face time and space as part of a small group.

Course 2 – Flexible online – for those of you who feel you’re coping with technology but its not an enjoyable experience. You will have guided space and time to suit but as part of a learning community.

These course are for any Directorate/Faculty staff at Hallam. Take a look at the course themes/descriptors and if you  have any queries/questions please contact Helen Rodger mailto:h.m.rodger@shu.ac.uk
