Trainings and Workshops
Trainings are basic Drupal trainings designed for the beginner to start editing their websites. It is a two hour long hands-on class (computers provided but feel free to bring a laptop). Those who are advanced web editors but are new to the UCR Drupal environment should also take the class to see how things differ. Workshops are open sessions for those who have had basic training. These delve into specific topics and new features. They are also open for questions and sharing.
Online training will take place for the foreseeable future. This training will be conducted via Zoom. Beginning training typically takes 2 hours to go over the basics. It is recommended that you reach out to your Site Factory Manager first regarding the plan for your site's transition if it already exists. For individuals who wish to complete Drupal training, once your Drupal site has been created, please fill out the form.
Workshops are open to all contributors, editors, and site builders. Every workshop we'll discuss a topic for the first part of the session. After, we'll turn it over to questions and depending on the amount of people attending, could possibly work in small groups or one on one. At least one of the developers will also be in the room for more technical questions.
The workshops are held in the C&C/ITS building (back of lot 9) in room 112 every third Thursday. You do not need to reserve a spot but do note that spaces are limited.
*UPDATE: Workshops starting March 2020 will be conduced via Zoom. Closer to the dates of the workshop, there will be a registration link. Be sure to register for the upcoming workshop you'd like to attend. May's workshop has been postponed a week. New date = May 28th.
