Registration is now open for the fully virtual, campus-wide January training days on Thursday, Jan. 14, and Friday, Jan. 15.
Participation in these trainings is not mandatory, but they offer a great opportunity before the spring semester to connect with colleagues and invest in yourself professionally and personally.
We started these training days last year to create space for important conversations within our campus community about diversity, equity and inclusion. We also invited faculty and staff to contribute professional development sessions in their areas of expertise. Much of the feedback we received about the 2020 January training days centered on the positive experience of coming together as a learning community, and participants’ interest in expanding to an even greater breadth of offerings.
This year, we are pleased to present 30 different training opportunities across two dedicated training days. All sessions will be delivered virtually.
A third of the sessions being offered focus on topics related to diversity, equity and inclusion, with workshops on racism and bias, supporting trans students, and strategies for addressing mental health concerns, among others.
There are also a number of technology training opportunities, with particular focus on tools and resources for working, teaching and supporting students remotely. Some the workshops being offered on individual technology resources include OneDrive, SharePoint, Webex, and CircleIn.
There are also a wide variety of training options for making the most of campus resources and growing as a professional. We thank all those in our community who are contributing their time and expertise with colleagues as presenters.
For those who are interested in attending sessions, please register now! Capacity is limited and seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration will close on Monday, Jan. 11.
