Micro Course Monday

"Micro Course Monday" is a series of free, weekly trainings available to faculty, staff, students and the community throughout the academic semester. Each micro course in the series will showcase unique professional achievements, soft-skills development, extracurricular course completion, and non-academic certifications.

You can attend the micro course in-person (every Monday at 3:00 pm in Dana Hall 228), synchronously online through Collaborate or watch the recording at a later date in the "Micro Course Series" Brightspace shell. Attendance will be recorded and at the conclusion of the training you will receive a digital badge in RooLife and an electronic certificate.
