Online Workshops

We offer online workshops to all current UIS students. We conduct online workshops using Blackboard Collaborate software. The online workshop will consist of a brief lesson, discussion, and then practice of the topic. Students are encourage to bring questions they can ask following the lesson portion of the workshop.

**Our workshops are recorded to allow other students unable to meet during the workshop to learn about the topics covered – should you have any issues with this policy, please contact us at**

Following registration: students will receive an email with a link to the online classroom prior to the workshop. To prepare, please ensure you have Java updated, and that you have working headphones and/or speakers to be able to hear the presentation.
