Faculty of Information professors, librarians, staff, current students, alumni, and a collective of professionals and academics from each program and concentration, worked together to create the iSkills roster of workshops listed below. Together with the required curricula, these workshops create a unique information and heritage educational experience. They also address academic, professional, and technical competencies aligned with your program and / or concentration(s).

To view a catalogue of our past sessions, please view the iSkills Catalogue (as of March 24, 2022).

For students and alumni looking for workshop materials from previous sessions, including slides and handouts, please contact Daisy Dowdall, Instructional Support Coordinator.


  • Registration is required for all workshops.
  • BI, MI, MMSt, and PhD students and Faculty of Information alumni are eligible to register for iSkills workshops.
  • Students and alumni will receive an email from Daisy Dowdall with the registration links.
  • If a workshop is full, be sure to sign up for the waitlist, as we will add additional sessions to the roster based on numbers of those who are on the waitlist.

Withdrawing and No Shows

If you are unable to attend a workshop for which you have signed up, be sure to withdraw at least 48 hours prior to the session.

To withdraw from a session, please use the link provided in your initial registration confirmation email for the workshop, and follow the on-screen instructions.

Students and alumni who repeatedly fail to attend workshops they have registered for will be suspended from the iSkills program.
