The Graduate School offers the Graduate Student Workshop Series, which is designed to supplement a student's academic training by providing brief, specific skill-building sessions that focus on professional and personal development. UC faculty, alumni, staff and community partners act as topical experts presenting on such topics as oral presentation, credit and budgeting, and nonacademic career development. UC academic departments and offices also provide workshops of relevance to graduate students. UC workshops provides a collegial forum in which students can sharpen skills now while they prepare for their futures.
The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning (CET&L) offers an array of experiential workshops and learning modules tailored to the needs of graduate teaching assistants, faculty, and others interested in improving their teaching.
You can download powerpoint presentations, handouts and other materials from previous workshops by going to the Past Workshops page.

This workshop will introduce participants to the free Web 2.0 tool WordPress, which can serve as a handy blogging site but which can also serve as a powerful digital portfolio (ePortfolio) program. In this web-authoring capacity, WordPress can effectively help us to showcase our work, within a professional context and with a professional appearance, for such purposes as job searches or scholarship applications.
Workshop participants will be guided in beginning to develop a WordPress ePortfolio, with plenty of follow-up resources available to help complete those plans. Although no prior experience is assumed in using WordPress or in building a digital portfolio, participants could get a running start by creating a (free) WordPress account in advance of the workshop, at http://wordpress.com. Recorded October 24, 2013.
