Requesting a Workshop from the Educational Technologist, Faculty of Education, VIU

1) Identify Some Target Dates

First you will need to identify some target dates for when you want the
workshop to run. Check with the  Educational Technology Technician (Ed.
Tech) to determine her availability for your dates--have her tentatively book
your dates if available. (Be sure to leave adequate lead time if you need custom
workshop materials developed.)

2) Identifying Appropriate Labs

Not all labs are created equal--and labs are not available 24/7. Determine
which labs have an acceptable number of stations for your class & activities.
(I.e. are students sharing? need an individual computer? Do you need an
Instructor station that connects to a projector? Do you need audio?) Below is a
list of the labs you can book for a workshop on the Nanaimo campus. Determine
which lab has the appropriate number of stations for your needs. You should have
an alternate choice(s) should your first lab not be available--or an alternate
date/time for the workshop.

3) Booking the Lab

The Education Lab is booked through the Faculty of Ed. office. For
that you contact Darlene Higgins (higginsd@viu.ca). All other labs need to be booked via Darlene Higgins who will forward
your one-time request for facility booking. When you've found an appropriate
place/time, please email Darlene Higgins (higginsd@viu.ca).
She will process the one-time bookings. (You can save some scheduling efforts by
first checking potential availability of your top choices at: https://records.viu.ca/reg/htbin/roommenu . Note: This will only show the likelihood of availability actual availability will be determined at the
time of booking.) The lab will be officially "booked" only when you receive a
confirmation of the booking (generally via email).

4) Consult with Educational Technology Technician

Once you have booked the Ed.Tech and the lab, please arrange to consult with
the Educational Technologist, Julia Hengstler (Julia.Hengstler@viu.ca). When developing customized materials, it is advisable to meet at
least 2 times: once to outline your educational objectives, types of activities,
etc. and a second time to review what the Ed.Tech has developed to determine if
the materials need revision, types of revisions, etc.
