Hello everyone! My name is Jia Ping Lee and I have joined the Digital Skills team as a digital capabilities and skills development coordinator.
I completed my undergraduate studies in Genetics at Aberystwyth and recently returned home from China after 4 years as an English Teacher for young children.
I am looking forward to supporting and working with staff and students at the university to help develop their digital skills and become digitally confident, as we all try to navigate and keep up with our constantly evolving digital society.
The Student Digital Champions met with groups of students in March 2023 to gather their opinions on LinkedIn Learning, an online learning platform that all students and staff at AU have free access to.
From 6th – 10th November 2023 we are hosting Aberystwyth University’s Digital Skills Festival and we are looking for postgraduate students to deliver sessions. You can deliver a session either online or in-person and it can be a workshop, drop-in session or demonstration on a digital skill or software that you are proficient in using. For example, we would like some sessions on the following skills and software:
Microsoft Packages – Essential or Advanced
Python (or other programming software)
Social Media e.g., creating Instagram Reels, TikToks, Twitter, YouTube etc.
Creating or editing videos
We are also open to any other skill or software you think is important and should be delivered!
