We offer in-class, discipline-specific seminars tailored to the needs of your course. Our librarians will also work with you to develop research assignments and to create course Web pages that help students learn to find, evaluate and use information effectively.

The Learning Crossroads offers workshops to build the digital skills of all uOttawa students, faculty, and staff. Whether it’s collaborating with Google apps, staying focused with your devices, or creating videos to spread your message, if it involves technology, we want to help you improve your digital literacy.

Do you have a recommendation for a workshop? Please contact Mish Boutet, Digital Literacy Librarian. You can also check to see if an online course already exists.
