Develop and showcase your digital skills

We'll have some seasonal surprises to give away soon - watch this space!!

Digital Champions

Digital Champions, is a staff and student partnership initiative at NUI Galway, aiming to improve the skills, confidence and knowledge of people in using digital technologies.

Now in its second year, we are recruiting enthusiastic students (that means you!), who would like to get involved. You don’t have to be tech savvy, but you do have to be interested in improving your own digital skills along with those of your fellow students.

We’ll be running a series of workshops (three in each semester), on topics as diverse as ‘getting started with digital video’, to ‘promoting yourself online’. All of our workshops are hands on, fun and interactive so you’ll get a chance to try out lots of different gadgets, while exploring how to use technology more effectively.


Why Get Involved?

Becoming a Digital Champion is a brilliant way of improving your digital skills, earning the ALIVE certificate, gaining ‘digital badges’ to put on your CV, getting involved in activities on campus throughout the year, and meeting lots of new people!

All levels of participation are welcome, and you can fit the scheme around your studies.

To become an official NUI Galway Digital Champion though, you’ll be expected to attend a minimum of three workshops, along with participating in various activities throughout the year.
