Focus workshops

These workshops build on the fundamentals workshops. It is recommended that staff complete a fundamentals workshop before enrolling in a focus workshop.

Participants in these workshops will gain greater awareness of best practice when utilising the university Learning Management System (LMS) for enhancing the student experience across the virtual and physical learning spaces.

Focus workshops offer professional development in the areas of:

  • Assignments
  • Communications - blogs, discussions, journals, and wikis
  • Grade Centre
  • Groups
  • Tests and surveys


These workshops are suited for those who are familiar with the basic design and navigation of the university LMS. Most participants will have created or taught using a UOS website in the university LMS. There will be opportunities in this workshop for participants to discuss specific design and functionality questions.
