Welcome! Please log in.

The Centre for Teaching and Learning's Brightspace Workshop series provides in-person and on-line synchronous learning opportunities. In-person workshops for faculty/staff are offered in two varieties:

Step-by-Step: relaxed, slower-paced sessions and
Quick Steps: faster, technically driven sessions.

Start your Brightspace training with the Getting Started with Brightspace workshop to provide the basis for the more advanced workshops.

Once you are registered for a workshop, if you find you will not be able to attend, kindly unregister for the workshop so facilitators can plan activities accordingly.
