The workshop is designed for new and experienced educators, and allows participants to start at the beginning of the training modules or at anywhere else. The information is organized to allow for educators with any level of experience, to enter the workshop at any point, to begin exploring and learning about the topic of their choice. This workshop is also self-paced, so it can be accessed at any time or even as a refresher. The workshop covers topics like how to create a portfolio, use the OCIS assessment tools, or explore the data and information files.
