FlashClass Offers Return

Following a recent successful pilot program, HSLS FlashClass offers have resumed for the summer. FlashClass is a “deal of the week” Groupon-like offer of timely and useful learning—minus the cost! The FlashClass model proposes one or two topics each week, and you’re invited to sign up to attend a one-hour class the following week. If at least 3 people sign up, we’ll hold the class. (We’ll notify you either way.)

FlashClass topics for August include altmetrics, mobile apps, literature management for grant applications and systematic reviews, and EndNote for experienced users, among others.

You’ll automatically receive FlashClass e-vites each week if you’re already on the HSLS Update newsletter e-mail list. If not, sign up to receive the weekly e-vites (use @pitt.edu e-mail addresses only, please).
