Additional VU Collaborate training sessions are now available on the VU Collaborate help site. These are listed under ‘Non-College’ on the Training Calendar, and are available to staff across all Colleges. They include:
- Training for Instructors/Coordinators (2 hours + 2 hours for those who need to design and build their online courses),
- Training for Tutors (2 hours for those who need to know how to manage interactions and provide feedback)
- Drop-in sessions (you must have attended training for Instructors/Coordinators or Tutors before coming to a drop-in session)
- Lunchtime sessions (ReVU, Virtual Classrooms, Turnitin)
Last chance for Part A Instructor/Coordinator training before Winter/S2!
Please note that we are coming to the final listings for Part A training sessions prior to Winter term / Semester 2 delivery. So if you haven’t attended a Part A session yet, and need to design and deliver online for Semester 2, please book in now! If none of the session scheduled for your College suit, you can book into another College’s session or one of the non-College sessions. We will not be providing last-minute training for individuals.
Would you like to arrange specific training for a group of staff?
If your discipline team or group has a training need outside of the above and wishes to organise group training (8 or more staff), please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to accommodate your needs. Please provide details of training needs/topic or tool, staff numbers, date and location preferences. Note that the Blended Learning team requires two weeks notice and may require you to organise the room booking.
