This workshop is part of an online, asynchronous workshop, meaning it takes place online, on your own time. There are no live meetings, either in person or online. You can view and complete assignments on your own time to fit into your busy schedule. However, you will need to commit six hours each week to complete each workshop and hands-on skills training assignments. You will interact with your fellow students and your instructor via weekly collaborative discussion forums and submit interactive Panopto videos.
Your instructor will be available to meet with you virtually, by appointment.
Please note that this workshop is a one-week program and you can choose which week you wish to register for below as there are two calendar choices. Do not register for both weeks.
