Free Technology Workshops at UW Seattle; Improvements Underway

Students at computers

UW-IT is offering a short technology workshop series for UW students, faculty, and staff through August 30, aimed at teaching technology skills in graphics and design, Web development, video, and audio. Over the summer, the instructional team will tackle a major workshop curriculum improvement effort to better align online materials with in-workshop content, making it easier for students to learn and review on their own. The new curriculum will start this fall. Register now.
