The Skills Update Workshops

The Skills Update workshops are an attempt to answer the many requests from faculty who have successfully completed the "Build a Web Course" workshop and wish to update their skills and create more online and hybrid courses.  These workshops are taught by Dr. Jake McNeil and Ms. Nikki Hill. In spring 2015, CHSS Office of Distance Education will offer two workshops: The Skills Update Workshop and the Advanced Skills Update Workshop. Ten faculty will be accepted for each workshop. Workshop participants will commit to building a complete online or hybrid course by May 25, 2015. In addition, participants will choose and complete nine of 12 available "skills update" online modules on topics such as cloud computing, creating streaming video, and online pedagogy.  

The Advanced Skills Update Workshop cannot be taken unless the Skills Update Workshop has been successfully completed.
