LinkedIn Learning Skills Challenge

GradFUTURES is launching a new series of LinkedIn Learning challenges for Princeton graduate students! 

Our Fall/Winter Challenge: devote at least 30 minutes a week to learning something new--or deepen your knowledge on a topic--using LinkedIn Learning. Learn and grow by acquiring a programming language like Python, a well-being practice like mindfulness, or a leadership and mentorship competency like culturally-competent communication skills.

25 Graduate students who meet or surpass the challenge of spending 30 minutes a week learning on the LinkedIn Learning platform will be eligible for prizes, including a book with a well-being emphasis. (All books will be ordered from this list of Black-owned independent bookstores. Special thanks to the TigerWell Initiative for their support and partnership!) 

To provide you with some possible starting points, we've curated the top LinkedIn Learning courses completed by Princeton graduate students. This is a compilation of some of the many courses completed by Princeton graduate students--often by more than one student. While completion does not necessarily imply an endorsement of the content, it is generally a sign that the user found the content valuable. We've compiled a list of these courses to give you a sense of how graduate students are making use of LinkedIn Learning at Princeton, and how you might do the same!

Topics include:

  • R (Programming Language)
  • Microsoft Excel
  • C (Programming Language)
  • JavaScript
  • Photography
  • Git
  • Workplace Relations
  • LinkedIn
  • React.js
  • Python
