The GSA 2021 Graduate Showcase site is now ready for students to begin uploading their work. This week’s Tip pulls together some of the support options available to students and details where students can get further help and assistance with uploading and presenting their work to the 2021 Graduate Showcase.
The Graduate Showcase pages on the Student Intranet is the main hub of information for students regarding the showcase and presenting your work online. At the bottom of the Graduate Showcase page you will find the Graduate Showcase calendar which is useful to see a timeline of key dates over the next few months.
Other Information available on the Graduate Showcase pages of the Student Intranet includes advice on website building, documenting your work, utilising social media, writing artist’s statements and lots more.
The LTHelp for students course on Canvas also has more information on accessing the site and where to get help.
If you need further support with accessing, uploading or presenting your work on the Graduate Showcase site, student’s can contact the learning technology team at LTHelp@gsa.ac.uk
