Technology Transition Programme

Technology is central to your success at university. To help to prepare you, the Maynooth University Access Programme invites you to attend the Technology Transition Programme (TTP).  These are fun group online sessions designed to introduce you to some of the technologies available to guide you through the academic environment. 

11am Maynooth Online. Learn how to access your Office 365 college email, access your course content in Teams and Moodle, store your documents and engage with your classmates.
12pm Learn to Learn. Find out about resources that can assist with notetaking in lectures, with completing your readings, researching and tracking your library searches.
2pm Student Strategies. Key strategic tools are introduced to help you to manage your timetable, organise yourself and improve your memory with helpful tips and apps.

Each TTP session runs for about 45 minutes on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, accessible on mobile and desktop through Microsoft Teams (Google Chrome preferable). You can attend any and all of the sessions below, and come along multiple times to any topic if you'd like to refresh your learning.
