In Person Training
Training is conducted on a per department (for department and center sites) or per lab/research group basis. Training typically takes 1.5-2 hours. It is always best to schedule two hours. 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. Please have department personnel (or the lab/research group advisor) reach out to email@example.com to request a training session for your department. Include the following information in your email.
- List of websites your department will be editing (name and URLs)
- Days and times that work best for your group (up to two weeks out)
- List of people who will be attending (names and net ids)
- Have you already requested a Drupal site?
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 (except for October, it will be held on the fourth Friday!). You do not need to reserve a spot but do note that spaces are limited.
