Expand your digital knowledge with the 23 Things program!

By Curtin Library 22 July 2020 News & events 1 Comment »

Gear up for a digital world and win prizes with our freeĀ 23 Things program! Created by students, for students, the program covers a different technology or digital skill each week, ranging from video editing and coding to 3D modelling, digital storytelling and more.

Starting O-Week (with a repeat in week one), the program will run online throughout the semester for you to complete anywhere, at anytime. It’s free, self-paced and you can do as much or as little as you want! In addition to the online module, the Makerspace will be holding weekly workshops related to each skill, both online and in person.

Curtin students who participate can go into the draw to win a $100 voucher each week, and a grand prize of $500 at the end of semester for overall participation. Terms and conditions apply.

Sign up here to receive our weekly program email, or look out for updates on the Library’s social media in the coming weeks!

    Always wanted to expand my knowledge within the digital space and find something I’ll do for post grad.
