Training & Consulting
Consulting provides free training, consulting and support to any UO instructor interested in exploring innovative ways of integrating effective technology into teaching and scholarly publishing. Training and consulting services are available in a number of ways:
- drop-in to Knight Room 19 during our regular hours (19 Knight Library - ground floor)
- schedule an appointment (346-1942 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
- arrange for an in-office visit
- request a training workshop
- get help with preparing your ETD
Consulting also serves as an important referral service for faculty who may need more advanced technical help or instructional design assistance.
Drop-In and By Appointment
Consultants are available to provide one-on-one training and support any time during our hours. However, during those hours you might want to call in advance (346-1942) to reserve a workstation or specific hardware (e.g., digital video camera, digital voice recorder). Workstations that are not reserved in advance are available on a first come, first served basis. Calling in advance also allows us to make sure that the staff member on duty will be prepared to help you with your particular questions.
When not in use to provide training, our extensive collection of software and hardware is also available to faculty and GTF patrons for independent projects.
We can also provide free in-office visits to faculty and GTFs who would like assistance using several specific instructional technologies in the courses you are teaching or developing. At your request, we will send a student consultant or staff member to help you. For instance, perhaps you would like help using Blackboard; we can help you get acclimated with creating and maintaining your course web site and using Blackboard to interact with your students. Most visits will take less than two hours. We will try to schedule your office visit for within two weeks of your request.
Workshops on Demand
Workshops on Demand offer customized workshops for the University of Oregon community to meet technology training needs of its students, faculty, and staff, with a focus on academic and curricular topics. These workshops replace the open enrollment workshops previously offered by the IT Curriculum. Workshop topics range from Blackboard, to PowerPoint, EndNote, Dreamweaver and Excel to name a few.
Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs)
We provide support and technical consultation for graduate students preparing theses and disserations for electronic submission. For more information, refer to the Graduate School ETD page.
