Find a SkillShop to expand your skillset!

Learn new skills online in a way that works best for you!

Canvas online SkillShops allow you to work at your own pace. There are 12 different Canvas SkillShops on a variety of topics. Each Canvas SkillShop takes 1-1.5 hours if you tackle all at once, or else you can break that up and finish it over a weekend or even longer.

Live Zoom SkillShops (see the Zoom calendar) allow you to meet up with others online. Zoom SkillShops are all 50 minutes long and are scheduled throughout the semester. Check back to see calendar updates because more SkillShops are added to the calendar throughout the semester.
