Foundations of Digital Literacy virtual workshops

Foundations of Digital Literacy virtual workshops for Michigan library staff

These trainings are purposely small in order to allow for plenty of personal attention and lots of interactive small group activities, so we encourage you to grab your spot fast.

Who are these workshops for?

The Foundations of Digital Literacy workshop is designed to help library staff gain confidence in everyday interactions with technology and is intended for participants who would like a basic introduction to digital literacy topics. Because these workshops are funded by the Library of Michigan, they are only open to staff of Michigan libraries.

What topics will these workshops cover?

Knowledge and skills taught and practiced during the workshop will include:

Requirements for participation

As this workshop will be presented virtually through Zoom, participants will need to have a basic knowledge of how to log in to a Zoom meeting. Instruction on the basics of using Zoom for a training workshop will be delivered at the beginning of the workshop. This is intended to be an interactive course that involves discussion and hands-on practice, and participants should plan to have a microphone enabled, and if possible, to turn their cameras on for full participation.
