Workshops and Walk-Ins


Workshop Formats

The Learning Hub offers both on-campus workshops and online workshops.

On-Campus Workshops

On-campus workshops are offered to all current UIS students. These workshops provide students with a brief lesson on a featured topic. Then, students will apply the lesson through discussion and practice.

Writing and Academic Skills workshops are available for any UIS class. Instructors can request in-class workshops either to introduce The Learning Hub and its services or to cover writing- or academic skills-related content. To set up a workshop, please contact your program’s Liaison or fill out our Workshop Request Form.

Online Workshops

Online workshops are offered to all current UIS students. We conduct online workshops using online meeting software. The online workshop will follow the same format as the on-campus workshop with a brief lesson, discussion, and practice of the topic.

Pre-registration: Online workshops require pre-registration at least one day prior to the workshop date. Students can register for the workshop by sending an e-mail with their name, their UIN, and the workshop’s title, date, and time to The Hub.

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. Microphones are optional, should you desire to ask questions aloud during the session.

After you participate in an online workshop, we’d appreciate if you could complete a brief survey. Click here to begin survey.

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 The Hub’s Email.
