eLearning Professional Development
The eLearning department offers several different training opportunities throughout the year for faculty (full-time and adjuncts) and staff. Below are the courses and descriptions. Once enrolled in the Building Quality Courses in Canvas course, you will have access to a calendar so you can see exactly when each session is offered. Sessions are offered in a variety of formats to meet the needs of varied schedules. You will find the following types of training:
- Self-paced online (S) – The course is available online in Canvas and can be started and completed at the users own pace. These are typically longer courses, but often have the ability to take “challenge” tests in order to skip content the participant may already be familiar with. These courses can be self-enrolled in by visiting the Canvas Public Course page and choosing any course that allows you to Join.
- Online (O) – The course is available online with a specific start and end date. Pre-registration for the course is required.
- Webinar (W) – This course is available synchronously typically through WebEx or Zoom. This course usually lasts between one and two hours. Pre-registration for the course is required and is typically limited to 25.
- Hands-on (H) – This course is available in person. This course usually lasts between one and two hours. Pre-registration for the course is required and is typically limited to less than 20.
Beginning in 2020, faculty and staff at Shelton State have the opportunity to earn badges for technology-based professional development they successfully complete. Each badge expires after 5 years.
Below are the badges that are available or planned to be available for Shelton State employees. As badges are earned, the faculty/staff member will have their name listed with the month and year they earned the badge.
