Information Services offers a range of services to support students develop IT skills. These are described below:
Introduction to IT and Library Services (Student Induction): The IT Training and Assessment Unit and the Library work closely with academic staff to provide an 'Introduction to Library and IT Facilities' to new, mostly, undergraduate students. By the end of week 1 most new students will have attended sessions to hear about IT and Library facilities followed by a Library tour, with an opportunity to meet their Subject Librarian. The key web pages for new, all, students are at www.qub.ac.uk/student
Student IT Skills (Individual Students or Support for Schools): Students can acquire IT skills either through their School or individually through support for taking the European Computer Driving Licence (Core and Advanced - see ECDL (European Computer Driving Licence)). The Unit provides:
- Following on from Induction: IT training sessions (organised through Schools or the PG Training Office) for those students lacking the necessary basic IT skills.
- Support for the introduction of an IT element into a module or pathway. This support includes training materials developed for students. Staff may take and adapt the training materials with due attribution (the documents are available, on request, in Word format). Most of our training materials are available from http://go.qub.ac.uk/itdocs
- Support for the introduction of the European Computer Driving Licence or ECDL Advanced into courses.
- General advice and support on ICT assessment.
