Adobe Creative Campus

Important Update:-

Dear Colleagues, 

New 2/05/2024 - Adobe Education Institute Event Week - June 10th to June 14th.

Open to all faculty, staff and trainers and is an invitation-only conference for Adobe global Adobe Creative Campus institutions, which is a very select group of 6 in the UK (we were number 3). 

Through a series of live, hands-on training sessions, participants will discover ways to deepen student engagement and foster multi-modal teaching using Adobe technology. All sessions will be delivered remotely and recorded for on-demand access. You must register to be able to see the recorded sessions.

  • Intro to Adobe Express in Higher Education
  • Teaching with Generative AI and Firefly        
  • Productivity with Acrobat
  • Publish Papers and Essays
  • Designing Presentations
  • Storytelling with Video
  • Create Portfolios, Resumes, and CVs
  • Create Podcasts with Adobe Audition
  • Digital Imaging with Generative AI
  • Create Graphs and Visualize Data


The event will also include office hours, an optional showcase, and an opportunity to receive badging and an “Adobe Education Institute Fellow” credential. 

More information about the schedule can be found on this AEIFAQ page.

Registration is here:

Please have a look. My experience of these sessions by Edex is very positive, a specialist runs the sessions, you get the opportunity to create using exercise files, ask questions, and then submit your creation to win freebies, and get a badge. These events are offering more – a fellowship certificate.


Adobe hosts a series of Professional Development sessions, called Academic Essentials. These are 90-minute online sessions where you can register for free!


Also Check out the Adobe Professional Development page here where you can register for the sessions, and see new ones as they are added.
