Digital Skills Week

We are pleased to be holding Digital Skills Week once again, from 3-7 March 2025. If you would like to contribute to Digital Skills Week with a workshop, presentation, video or poster, please complete this programme proposal form by 14th January 2025.

The week gives everyone at Herts an opportunity to explore, develop and share digital skills, to excel in your course and career and thrive in the digital world.

Digital Skills Week is a University of Hertfordshire community event. Our students and staff make it a fantastic experience through your participation and by sharing your skills and expertise.

Prepare for Digital Skills Week by completing the Jisc Digital Discovery Tool to generate a personalised report to understand more about your capabilities in each of the six areas, and be guided to plan and undertake relevant development activity.

Fantastic sessions, so much covered in 45 minutes and really well explained.

Ola, undergraduate student

We enjoyed presenting and participating in the sessions. Predominantly, we gained confidence in sharing our knowledge and experience of digital problem solving. Additionally, we learnt a lot of new skills such as video editing and using Adobe software.

Michael, undergraduate student

As Researchers we are encouraged to be reflective, so using the Jisc Digital Discovery Tool is a good way to start, because it helps you to understand how you can develop your digital skills. I’d strongly encourage you to attend the sessions in Digital Skills Week.

 Nadine, postgraduate research student

I enjoyed meeting staff and students at the University of Hertfordshire during Digital Skills Week. In the sessions we looked at building effective LinkedIn Learning profiles, and use LinkedIn Learning and tools within the LinkedIn Economic Graph to identify and pursue skills development for their chosen career path

 Kash Ahmed, Senior Customer Success Manager, LinkedIn

The range of topics that they cover is incredible, there is something that will suit everyone. The sessions were really welcoming and informal, so it allowed me to ask questions about things I perhaps did not understand. It has been beneficial for me overall and I have put various things into practice
