Everyone is an expert at something and Penn students are no exception. Library staff have been impressed by the skills, tips, and tricks students show us all the time so we thought we needed to give students a platform to share their skills and knowledge with a wider audience. If you've ever thought to yourself, "This is amazing! I need to show other people how to do this!" then we invite you to apply and level up!
Level Up is a new program for Penn undergraduate and graduate students that pays students to lead workshops in Making, Digital Media and Design, and Research Tools and Technology.
We are seeking student workshop leaders. Library staff will work closely with Level Up workshop leaders to develop a successful workshop plan and provide all the support necessary to ensure a successful workshop. All you need is a great workshop idea!
