Digital Lifehacks 101: Media Management and Organization Strategies

Do file management systems, folder naming conventions, and digital storage strategies make you shudder? Have you ever wondered how to make digital collaboration with other people easier? Curious about how things like cloud based storage work? Simply want to be more productive with your time on your computer? Then this is the workshop for you!

We all know that sometimes the organizational side of computing is a low priority when doing your day to day work. However, your productivity is greatly affected by your organizational skills. Your organizational skills could also be a life saver if you ever have a hard drive fail you or lose your computer. In this unique workshop, Carrie Gates will teach you how to organize your digital life so that you can manage your media and elevate your career with a minimum of stress, so that you can focus on your work with efficiency and peace of mind.

At the end of this workshop, participants will have access to a brief Q & A session with Carrie about their own specific topics of interest. This workshop can be followed up at a later date with a session on topics like social media management, SEO, online security, and other subjects defined by the workshop participants’ needs.

Photoshop and Illustrator Training

Photoshop and Illustrator are extremely powerful programs for many types of visual design, image editing, and wireframe prototyping. Basic image editing in Photoshop (like cropping and colour retouching) isn’t too hard to learn on your own with some perseverance, but it is a much more powerful and fun tool than a lot of people use it for. Illustrator is especially tricky to get the hang of, but it is my specialty “go to” tool for many kinds of work that I do.

A few years ago while working at the University of Saskatchewan, I designed the curriculum and taught one third of a new university class (INCC 210.3 Introduction to Digital Communication and Design) under the direction of Professor Allison Muri. The section I taught for two terms was about how to use Photoshop, web design principles, and content strategies to create detailed user interfaces and graphics for web production.

I love demystifying how the basics of these programs work and enhance the skills of more advanced users. I’m available for one on one tutoring or full on custom classes for up to 30 people.
