MtA launches Digital Skills Institute


Mount Allison University has officially launched its Digital Skills Institute, which will host a series of free workshops this summer where participants can develop their digital competencies. The topics covered in these courses include Microsoft Excel, the digital humanities, data visualization, and social media marketing. “We know our students and the wider community continue to want to learn in new ways and gain important career readiness competencies and upskilling,” said MtA Director of Extended Learning Dr Beth Jewett. “Participants will gain competencies with different digital technologies and programs, but also valuable experience in critical and creative thinking, knowledge translation, communication, and professionalism in a digital world.”
