Are you interested in learning more about becoming a curator in LinkedIn Learning? With curator access you can upload and arrange content into an intuitive and engaging format, in addition to receiving insights into how your audience is engaging with your content.

  • Tuesday 21 June (10:00-11:00) - LinkedIn Learning: Content and Curation – Learning in discussion (Part 2)* 

*Please note that both sessions will be delivered in English. 

Please visit the Staff Training Webpage for further details and to register your place. For all enquiries, please contact Sioned Llywelyn, Digital Capabilities Officer (digi@aber.ac.uk).
