GauchoSpace Training: Schedule of Workshops
GauchoSpace Workshops for Instructors
Instructors wishing to integrate GauchoSpace into their courses for the first time are required to complete a 90 minute Introduction to GauchoSpace workshop.
Instructors may choose to delegate some of the management of a GauchoSpace site to a Teaching Assistant. If you are a TA who has been asked to manage a course site by an Instructor, and the instructor has not been trained in using GauchoSpace, then please submit a help request to email@example.com and they will provide you with the necessary training.
The Introduction to GauchoSpace workshops are specifically designed for Faculty Members and Teaching Associates who are listed as the Instructor of Record for a course. There are different introductory workshops designed specifically for Teaching Assistants available at: http://collaborate.ucsb.edu/support/gauchospace/ta-training.
Workshop Topics: managing your course site, adding labels, files and links to websites, communicating with your students.
- Workshops are limited to 10 instructors.
- All workshop will be held in Phelps 1514 (Seminar Room) unless otherwise noted.
- Please use the link to the reservation form at the top or bottom of this page to RSVP.
