SILC Learning Support Services provides a wide variety of workshops, training, brown bag and other events to help faculty and students learn how to use technology effectively in their learning and teaching. Topics range from using digital storytelling techniques and tools to assessing online course environments, to learning camera and recording techniques, to Blackboard tips and tricks.

All events are coordinated through SILC LSS's Online Instructional Support team (silclss_ois@asu.edu).

The currently scheduled workshops are listed below.

Please contact us at silclss_ois@asu.edu with requests for other topics. We are glad to create other workshops, or meet with you one-on-one or in a group setting.

Scheduled events are in LL 68, unless otherwise noted.

Not a workshop, but a weekly two-hour coffee event, focused on technology and instruction.

Beagle Lunch and Learn:

Register Here

Beagle is a student question-asking platform designed to train critical thinking. Facilitating question asking can be time consuming: there is rarely enough time to read and respond to everything. Beagle Learning helps instructors collect student questions, and provides them with a summary and categorization of those questions. No curriculum changes needed.
