Welcome to Academic Computing Technology Workshops
Academic Computing Services offers a variety of technology workshops as an excellent way to broaden your software knowledge horizons. Our workshops are held in the computer labs and they are ALL hands-on. They vary from single 2 hour sessions to multiple days of 2 hour each for a max total of 6 hours. See workshop overview.
Schedule and Registration
Our workshop schedule is available at Workshop Search. If you are first time user, please sign up first. If you have already registered our workshops before, please use your UNI to sign in. Please register for these workshops as far in advance as possible. Classrooms have limited capacity, so be sure to sign up early to reserve your place. There is also a minimum of 4 necessary to hold a workshop. We only accept cash or checks.
To further support TC student, staff and faculty, Academic Computing Services offers workshops tailored to the needs of faculty course curriculum, student organizations, and other groups. There is no better way to approach a project than to have ACS customize a workshop that teaches you how to efficiently and effectively use the required software.
Workshops by appointment
To accommodate your busy schedule, Academic Computing Services offers the workshops “by appointment.” You just need to find at least 4 people who are interested in the same workshop and we will be happy to make an appointment for you.
