Student Trainers from the Students' Union (SU) Skills Training have recently taken the opportunity to make use of 8 West 1.28, one of the designated LITEbox spaces to promote their sessions to the wider student community. In preparation for using the LITEbox space for their first Skills Training session on 'Managing your Online Profile' on Thursday 5 November 2015, the Student Trainers used the space to record some promotional videos.
As well as recording their videos, the Student Trainers were also shown the room and how to make the most of the available technology for their upcoming sessions by members of the University's Audio Visual Unit.
Ian Robinson, Chief Executive, Students' Union said:
"I am delighted that our Student Trainers are engaging with LITEbox spaces and finding ways of introducing and using the technologies available to them. The SU is actively involved in the LITEbox initiative with both SU staff and student representatives on the project team. Through the introduction of these facilities, our Trainers will be able to run sessions in more interesting and engaging ways as well as to consider how to equip the student community with increased IT skills for their future lives and employability."
Students are encouraged to check the Skills Training workshops and events to find topics of interests and sign up for the 'Managing your online profile' event before spaces fill up.
