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 or by filling out our Workshop Registration form.
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.
Workshop Feedback & Survey
After you participate in an online workshop, we’d appreciate if you could complete a brief survey.
Workshop Recordings Policy
Our workshops may be 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.
Current Workshop Series
These workshop series are offered every fall and spring, and we add new topics often. Look in Campus Announcements for more information about our workshops. If you wish to attend a workshop but the day and time does not work with your schedule, we are happy to conduct the workshop as a one-on-one appointment. Please fill out our Make an Appointment form to request it!
