Please register for one of the sessions using this link: Digital Measures Training Registration

It’s not required that you register, but knowing who to expect at each session will help us to plan the sessions to be most beneficial to you. 

When you attend a training session, please bring your 2-year CV or a list of activities you need to enter in a digital format (you could bring a flash drive or email the cv/list to yourself). This will make entering the data easier as you can cut and paste from the list, and will also give us real examples to work from.

Additional open labs will be scheduled in the early fall semester and announced later in the summer. We may also schedule sessions specifically for your department, or via Zoom for off-campus faculty. If you are interested in a department specific or zoom session, please let your department chair know so he/she can work with the Assistant Dean's Office on scheduling a session.
