Adobe has announced the Adobe Education Creative Lectures tour, which it says showcases creative industry best practice and encourages skill development for both students and lecturers. The tour will combine hands-on training days for lecturers working in the Creative/Media HE colleges and universities, validated by industry certification, alongside lecture days for students on-site at the college campuses.

The free one-day Creative lectures will be held at locations across the UK including London, Liverpool, Southampton, Cardiff, Aberdeen and Falmouth. The first kicks off on today and tomorrow at Ravensbourne Media Academy in Kent, finishing up at Aberdeen College on May 26 and 27. The lectures for students will cover subjects including digital design, web communication, rich media and visual design. At some institutions, Adobe will also provide hands-on training for lecturers.
