We are pleased to announce that registration is open for the online workshops for the Koha training. You may register from the ILS web site training page (login required). We tried to make the registration page and workshop description page as self-explanatory as possible, but here are some tips.
Who May Attend the Online Workshops
Online workshops are open to all library staff.
However, we have limited registrations for most of the workshops. For the workshops that do not say *unlimited registration*, we ask that you sign up for only one session for your library and (if possible) allow multiple people to participate using the same PC with speakers.
One session of each workshop will have unlimited registration and is clearly marked as such. You may register multiple people from your library for the *unlimited registration* workshops and they do not need to use the same PC. Basically, a registration represents one PC regardless of the number of people watching the presentation from that PC.
We will be recording one session of each workshop and will post them for later viewing.
Pre-Requisites and Designated Trainers
All of the workshops, except the Koha PAC workshop, are pre-requisites for a hands-on workshop. Staff who are designated module trainers must attend the appropriate pre-requisite(s) for that workshop. The pre-requisite workshops are listed under each module on the workshop description page. Designated trainers should be sure to register, even if the registration is for a group of people, so that we can verify attendance.
If you need a refresher on designated trainers, please see the earlier blog post "Certifying the Trainers."
If the workshop you would like to attend is full, you will be added to a wait list. However, you should sign up for one of the other sessions of that workshop to assure that you have a seat. We will be verifying that the designated library trainer for each module is attending the required workshops. If necessary, we may need to adjust registrations to make certain all libraries are able to attend a workshop. We will also add additional workshops as necessary.
