How to request a workshop to support your learning design process

Applying for an ELDeR workshop

We are currently accepting requests for either fully online or fully on-campus ELDeR workshops (we do not offer a hybrid option). 
These run as follows:
  • Online - over three consecutive days, 09:00-15:30
  • On campus - over two consecutive days, 09:30-15:30
on fixed dates (see below).
Step 1 

Download the ELDeR Workshop Request Form:

Step 2 

Complete the form, making sure that:

  • the dates you request are ones where the whole academic team have confirmed they can attend for the whole workshop (see the ELDeR Workshop Dates below)
  • you have indicated clearly whether you are applying for an online or on-campus workshop
  • you have the agreement of your Head of School, who should sign the form to indicate their on-going support

Step 3

Return the completed request form and return at least two months before the date of the workshop you are requesting.

What happens after you apply

All requests will be reviewed by the Support for Developing Curriculum Committee before you will be given a firm booking. If successful, you will be advised if the dates you requested are still available.
