The Division of eLearning and Professional Studies offers customizable training opportunities for UAB faculty and staff for Canvas, academic technologies, Quality Matters, and other pedagogical topics for online and blended courses and programs. Training opportunities are available in both group and one-on-one settings. To schedule training, contact the division at email@example.com.
One-on-One and Group Training
The division offers training in both one-on-one and group settings. The training is customized to meet your needs and includes hands-on practice. We encourage you to bring your own devices and course materials with you to training; so, that you can apply what you are learning to an actual course. Schools, departments, and other entities can schedule a group training session at either the eLPS office or another location. Group training is particularly useful when adopting a new technology or for new instructors. Contact the division at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule training.
Open Labs are held at the beginning of the Fall and Spring terms. Contact Samira Laouzai for details.
Lunch & Learn Events
Each month the division hosts a Lunch & Learn event featuring UAB faculty and staff members discussing different topics related to online course instruction. Visit the division's Events Calendar for details.
